I want to inform you about a newly created section in SCN wiki
Now you’ll find at a central location in SCN a collection of all SAP MaxDB log files (up to Version 7.9). The collection contains a short description what the specific log file is used for, in which directory you’ll find them and if necessary how to convert them. Additionally you’ll find links to further relevant documentation.
This could be the starting point for error analysis of any SAP MaxDB database problems.
Feel free to give feedback if you are missing information.
