RMAN is designed to complete a backup or restore as quikly and efficiently as possible.
But if a job takes longer than expected to complete it can be confusing trying to determine:

What precisely is RMAN doing at any particular time? 
Is RMAN hung or just slow? 
How far into the backup/restore has it got?
How much more work is there to go? 

Knowing just how much processing has been done so far is often crucial when trying to decide whether or not to wait for job completion.
