Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 10.1.0.2 to 10.2.0.4 [Release 10.1 to 10.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

In a  downstream capture environment,  the v$archived_log view on the source database does not display the correct value for the "APPLIED" column after logs are transported and mined by the capture process on the downstream database. 

This poses an issue with RMAN as it will not delete the archive logs, as part of  normal backup routine although they are no longer needed.
