database logs

Hi folks, What is meant by database logs in sql server? How to view database logs for errors and issues in sql server?
Thanks in advance
For error you need check the sql server error log and sql agent log and appliation log but not the database log. Database logs are used for database transactions…
You can’t view them directly….
There are no documented procedures but you can undocumented one or third party tools…

Check out the SQL Server Online Manual (aka BOL). It is very detailed in that respect. —
