Here is something interesting:


RMAN> sql 'insert into absdba.tomtest values(sysdate)';


using target database controlfile instead of recovery catalog

sql statement: insert into absdba.tomtest values(sysdate)


RMAN> exit



So you can include sql statements within the rman script to update a
record in a database table to track your steps within rman.  The table
"tomtest" has one column - a date field.

You can get the times from the Rman repository (if you are using one).
In the RC_BACKUP_SET view there are starttime and endtime columns (date
fields).  Other than that, you can "echo time /t" in your NT script to
get start and end times.

Not using a repository, but thanks for the suggestion.
echo time /t would require me to write a script to do the 
math myself (don't want to).  I'm sure it's been done.

In fact, it has:
the 'time' command uses the Benchmark module

        Any suggestions for a unix like 'time' command that
        can be used from the command line, just on unix/linux?
        I need to time some RMAN operations on Win32 box.
        I've already DL'd and looked at Windows SFU (unix services), 
        but that is a pretty heavy install to just get the 'time'
