------ ------- ----- -------  -------  --- ---------  ------------- ---------
     1       1 10605 1048576        1  YES ACTIVE          11515628 16-APR-00

To see the names of all of the member of a group, use a query similar to the following:

SELECT * FROM V$LOGFILE;

GROUP#   STATUS  MEMBER
------  -------  ----------------------------------
     1           D:\ORANT\ORADATA\IDDB2\REDO04.LOG
     2           D:\ORANT\ORADATA\IDDB2\REDO03.LOG
     3           D:\ORANT\ORADATA\IDDB2\REDO02.LOG
     4           D:\ORANT\ORADATA\IDDB2\REDO01.LOG

If STATUS is blank for a member, then the file is in use.
