What is the difference between alert log file and trace 
file ?
 Question Submitted By :: Oracle-General
I also faced this Question!!     Answer Posted By  
# 1
Alert log file is found at the background dump directory specified by the background_dump_dest parameter. Alert log file logs the information like startup or shutdown information of the database,admin activities and its all done by the server process.

Example suppose you are away from monitoring database and database stop running or shutdown or restarted the information and the ora error messages will be checked by the alertlog file.

Trace file is found at the user dump directory specified by the user_dump_dest parameter. Trace file logs the information about user activities or the information about any internal error occurs at the database and its a user process.
