Do you mean in the case of a host crash, and if so what filesystem ?  If
you are using NFS at lesat so you shouldn't need to know the file names,
there is the ability to tell the NFS server to release all locks associated
with a dead host.

I am using NFS. I have many POOL on an NFS server and I use a special share NFS with all my hypervisors
where I put my locks

lock file_lockspace_dir = "/var/lib/libvirt/images/POOL_ADMIN/lock"

my POOL are
lock file_lockspace_dir = "/var/lib/libvirt/images/POOL_ADMIN/lock"
my POOL are

In a first time,
I tried sanlock with the same configuration but some old VMs often have crashed  and the qemu process were in an anormal state ( defunc ), and I wasn't be able to kill correctly the process. The virsh destroy command couldn't remove the VM.
from the virsh list ... and I always got
Failed to terminate process xxx with SIGTERM: Device or resource busy and the VM is still in the list

I wasn't be able to freeing the resource with sanlock and the result was that I couldn't start a VM which crashed before because the lock was still present.
I tried sanlock command to release the resource without success.

sanlock client rem_lockspace -r
__LIBVIRT__DISKS__:b90b9c61e2d6413077205907ffb3281a:/var/lib/libvirt/images/POOL_ADMIN/sanlock/b90b9c61e2d6413077205907ffb3281a:0:4 -p 9383

So I decided to try lock_manager , but there is no tools as sanlock to coupled vm name and lock. In a case of crash and if the lock isn't removed I  will be with the same problem, it 's one of the reason I want to create a datatable with sha256 checksum and the vm name.

I do an  sha256 hash from /var/lib/libvirt/images/lock/MyVM.img but I
don't get the same hash code form virtlockd ?
It uses the sha256 has of the filename. How did you generate your hash ?
If using shell make sure you don't include a newline

ie you want

  echo -n /var/lib/libvirt/images/lock/MyVM.img | sha256sum

not a plain 'echo' as that includes a newline

to test before a script with the python libvirt API
I am using a very simple python script

import hashlib
hash_object = hashlib.sha256(b'/var/lib/libvirt/images/POOL_PROD4/WPAD.img')
hex_dig = hash_object.hexdigest()
and the lock in the directory when I start the VM is
virsh start WPAD
ls -alcrt -rw-------  1 root root    0 31 mars  15:02 f12269eb8c7afd6551f2549d245e52182714ae43fd0212626593195a24349605

so I am little confused ...
