Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 10.2.0.1 to 12.1.0.2 [Release 10.2 to 12.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

On a database having Block Change Tracking enabled if more than 8 RMAN incremental backups are executed without consolidating them into a full backup, then the backup process will be very slow since the Block Change Tracking won't get used anymore.
