Both locking modifiers (table level access locking and row level access locking) allow a table to be read when it is undergoing update by another transaction.
The difference between the two is that the row level access lock only places an access lock on a single row-hash. This is a less expensive lock to apply, and is recommnended for requests that do single-AMP or group-AMP access.
The table level access lock places an access lock on the entire table. This is a more expensive lock to set because it involves all AMPs. So if you don't require all-AMP operations against the table being locked, use the less intrusive, row hash level access lock.
