Re: Lengthening backup

Andy,

The archivelogs are not being backed up by RMAN.  And I'm seeing nothing in 
v$session_longops:
    SQL> select * from v$session_longops where sid in (918,1185);

    no rows selected

One thing I did notice, FWIW, is at 10:22:35 yesterday, I looked in the 
directory to which the backup pieces are written, and no files had been touched 
since 10:19.  Later, at 10:32:22, the latest file timestamp was 10:28.  So it 
seems like the backup is doing something between file writes.  Don't know if 
that helps any.

  Hi Terry, two things come to mind. How are the archivelog files being handled 
(i.e. are they being bundled into the backup, perhaps without a delete?) and 
does v$session_longops reveal any clues when the backup is running?
