Large Pool might be used by RMAN only if channels are writing to
multiple output destination (i.e. COPIES=n where "n" greater than "1). 
The space is used for IPC tables, similar to those used by PX, MTS/SS,

Little bit confused.  If using RMAN to do a backup to disk, do you need a large pool configured.  I have one configured and was monitoring free space in the pool during an RMAN backup and it did not appear as if the pool was being used.
