    What difference do adding 'Plus Archivelogs' make to an open database backup




      Does adding the 'plus archivelogs' command to RMAN>backup database;


      make any difference to the backup when the database is open ?


      If the database is open, then RMAN>backup database; is having to include the archivelogs anyway to ensure the backupset pieces will have a consistent SCN and are not fuzzy.


      So it seems to my mind that RMAN>backup database;

      effectively implicitly adds 'plus archivelogs' anyway


      Any clarity greatly appreciated,
