RE: RMAN Restore Archivelog Files -- Very Slow

We have tried your suggestions plus rest of the team suggestions but there is no luck yet. Symantec is recommending using (database format 'bk_%U_%t') for backups so that it guarantees uniqueness in generated file names with timestamp. Without this, there will be performance degradation as the NetBackup catalog grows. We still have to test it.

You may want to search the Oracle-L archives at freelists.org<http://freelists.org> for RMAN performance problems.
This has appeared fairly frequently of late.
One of the posts lists a MetaLink note that is actually a master list pointing to other notes, all relating to RMAN performance problems.
BTW, the 'fix' for many RMAN performance problems:

Thanks for reading this email & Thanks in Advance for your help.
We are facing performance issue when trying to restore archive log files using RMAN catalog.
Oracle Database: 10g (10.2.0.3) RAC
Database Size: ~350 GB
Archive Log Files per day: ~30 - 45
Archive Log File Size: 200MB
Backups: RMAN to VTL (Weekly Full, Daily Incremental)
We restored 350 GB of database using RMAN catalog and it took around 6 Hrs which is very good. Most of the datafile sizes are around 30GB and some of the files are couple of GB.
When we try to restore archive log (200MB) files using RMAN Catalog and it is taking approximately 15 Minutes for each file. If we bypass RMAN catalog by using backup information from controlfile, it takes approximately 2.5 Minutes to restore each archive log file. After working with backup team, we found out that approximately 12 Minutes time was spent for the hand shake between RMAN Catalog and Netbackup catalog.
Did anyone of you have seen similar situation and what might be the problem? Have you done any kind of database maintenance work for RMAN repository database to improve performance?
