RMAN Reporting

To list (have a quick look of) all the data that need backup, expired backups, stored scripts, incarnations… we should use LIST command in RMAN, as explained HERE

If we want a more detailed analysis, we use report command, as explained HERE. Report command gives us information on what needs to be backed up, which backups are obsolete, information about db schema and any problems that it detects.
