I am using RMAN backup.
When I get the hot RMAN backup using the following commands.
BACKUP DATABASE PLUS ARCHIVELOG;
BACKUP CURRENT CONTROLFILE;
I was expecting to see that the rman backup would be smaller since it
is copying the used blocks for the database. Should I shrink the
tables before the backup ?
