I use RMAN for backup since long time and it was generating 5 .bkp files. But from last few days it is generating 17 .bkp files due to which my /backup partition gets 95% full.
What could be the reason ?
What is the solution for this ?
I have restarted the RMAN catalog once, still the problem remains and generates 17 files. I do check and delete the expired archivlog and backups on daily basis.
Did you check the size of your database and the size of archived logs ?
Is it an incremental backup ?
