RMAN debug

RMAN automates Oracle database's backup and recovery processes. If you would like to know what happens inside an RMAN command,(RMAN Internals), then try the debug option. Also, when you have a case opened on any RMAN issue, the debug logfile can help a support analyst quickly locate the source of your RMAN problem.

Its very easy to turn on the debug feature.

/home/oracle/backup_testing> rman log=output.log trace=debug_info.log
RMAN> debug on
RMAN> RMAN Command 1;
RMAN> RMAN Command 2;
RMAN> exit

The debug_info.log contains all the internal details. BTW, you will not find information about this feature in the Oracle Documentation.
