Can someone point me to exact list of things we'd lose w/o running w/

After upgrade to on Grid Control we have random job failures
w/o any clear cause, and prior to that we already had a number of
databases which had performance issues (resyncing with catalog
forever). Yes, we do have a number of patches to apply, but we are
rather tired of these issues, one of which is dealing with
increasingly useless Oracle support.

The number one issue is managing all backups centrally, but we have
this covered, since all jobs run from Grid anyway, and we parse RMAN
outputs for errors.

What functionality we'd be losing? I've googled, and some places say
some things like "some advanced commands are only available with
catalog", but they don't specify which.

As BlackSwan often says Wink when else fails refer to the documentation:
Database Backup and Recovery Advanced User's Guide
Chapter 1 Recovery Manager Architecture
Section RMAN Repository
And follow the links.
