    RMAN still running

    Once a day, we issue the following query through cron to see if
    RMAN is still running.


    select operation,OBJECT_TYPE,ROW_TYPE from $RMAN_STATUS where status='RUNNING' and OPERATION='BACKUP' and OBJECT_TYPE !='ARCHIVELOG';


    On some systems, when a full backup is in progress this query sees that a previous instance of RMAN is still running and reports it as
    an error when in fact its not because the DB is so big and take a long time to backup.

    Is there some table I can query where if I provide a tag for my full backup (ie tag=full_backup) or some other information I can look
    to see if that tag is still being backed up. This would be very equivelant to providing a job name to expdp and seeing if that job_name is active

    I was considering doing a select count... but that would not work as
    we often clone DB's and I beleive this will bring out the same error.


    Thanks to all who answer
