+ SYS operations are being audited (or users connecting with SYSDBA or SYSOPER privileges) by setting initialization parameter audit_sys_operations to TRUE.
+ Now, whenever a RMAN backup is started, it creates a huge amount of audit files in the destination defined by audit_file_dest initialization parameter
