saplog_<n> in Sybase ASE

Hi all,

I have just involved myself with Sybase ASE environment a couple of days ago, and I am quite confused with the purpose of saplog_<n>.
Based on the notes I've gone through, 12GB should be allocated for this.

It doesn't look like it's equivalent to Oracle redo logs, cause we have transaction dumps in Sybase ASE, am I correct?

Thanks for your guidance.

Henry G.

    Hi Henry,

    As you mentioned saplog_<n> are transaction logs of ASE running on ERP system. it roles redo and undo of Oracle. the differences compare to Oracle is that ASE has single instance multi-database architecture and each databases has their own multi data and log files but logically it forms a DB in the instance. so you can't not think the transaction log separately from the database. I'm not sure you've experienced MSSQL but boths are very similar in this architecture. because ASE is the ancestor of MSSQL.
