Why does Precise categorize RMAN backups as “other wait”?
By design, Precise categorizes the RMAN event activity as “other wait”, since Precise for Oracle is unable to obtain other information for that specific event.
To exclude RMAN from the Other Wait event, follow the below instructions.
To remove/filter RMAN collected data from being viewed in the Precise UI:
1. Select the Filter (next to the instance field)
2. Filter entries are: program / < > / rman.
