What is Undo logs?

A type of logs used by storage engine to guarantee transaction ACID. Not all storage engine uses undo logs. e.g. PostgreSQL does not use undo logs while MySQL's InnoDB does. Undo logs are used to revert the uncommitted changes during crash recovery or restore the data to a particular version in order to provide a consistent view for a particular transaction.
