Customers often request queries to tell how many blocks changed between backups, to better understand
database usage. You query the v$backup_datafile view as shown, to determine how effective the change tracking
data is in minimizing the incremental backup I/O (the pct_read_for_backup column). A high percentage for the
pct_read_for_backup column indicates that RMAN reads most blocks in the data file during an incremental
backup. To reduce this ratio you decrease the time between incremental backups.
