How to check database backups

Checking Database backups is one of the main focus areas of a DBA. From time to time, DBA needs to check database backup status and see if it's completed, failed, running, etc. Also, DBA must be able to get the backup start time, end time, and even the backup size for reference purposes. The below query gives answers to all the backup details in oracle.
