Delete obsolet/expired archivelog records in RMAN repository
Posted on 2012-08-24
I have a question regarding cleaning up the RMAN repository. I have a space issue on my backup disk location (FRA) after every daily backup I do a crosscheck of the database, control files and archivelog log files then I perform a delete obsolete/expired on these files. Also before the backup I delete yesterday's backup files in the (FRA). When I sign on to RMAN and do a 'list archivelogs all' I get a full list of archivelogs when I do a 'list backup;' I get the available list of the database files and control file but I get long list of backup archivelogs with the status of 'available' when these files have been removed from the FRA.
Why is this happening, does this increase the number of records in my RMAN repository, and will this increase cause my RMAN repository to be ineffiecient.
