If you're talking about archive logs and not online logs (which Oracle
is trying to update) then you should be able to use LogMiner to view
the contents with no problems with the database up.

If you're suddenly generating lots of extra redo then the first thing
that comes to mind is to check that your datafiles aren't in backup


It's better to ask a silly question than to make a silly assumption.
