    Hi,

    Transaction log is a Microsoft SQL Server term

    Redo log is an Oracle Database term.

    Transaction log is the MSSQL equivalent of both Oracle redo logs, undo segments and Archive logs.

    Hi,

    for redo logs u can find these URLs

    Redo log files contain the redo log entries of transactions that were not completed at the point of the most recent savepoint and have to be redone if a restart or recovery is required

    redo log file

    for action logs

    http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw04/helpdata/en/d2/424ab45b8e11d3bc5e00105a6588b2/frameset.htm

    use tcode : STAT for analyzing transaction logs

    use tocde: db16, dbacockpit for analyzing oracle redologs
