What if you were "in the middle of committing" at the moment of the crash.

Couldn't either the redo log, or the database, or the two of them taken together be in an inconsistent state?

Wouldn't it be necessary to resolve that inconsistency, if possible, by rolling back transactions in progress, before applying the redo to the database? Received on Tue Apr 20 2004 - 10:53:10 CDT
