CATALOGing the ArchiveLog does NOT mean that it is backed up ! The archivelog remains "in place". You have to explicitly run a BACKUP ARCHIVELOG .... command.

The "arc_...." name follows from the FORMAT that you have specified in the BACKUP command.

(and when you say "include archivelog", I believe that you mean "plus archivelog").
