I couldn't decide the number of licenses in use by processor matric.

Hi all,

I would like to ask review attachment to decide the number of processor licenses are in use for this 2 specific oracle database servers.

 

anyone who can review this inventory files and lms result related to server?

server names are: acct1 and acct2

Re: I couldn't decide the number of licenses in use by processor matric.

Hi @gotqcorp 

From the provided files I see each server as a Sun Fire V490 Server with 4 processors.

So the real question is:  What is the core factor for these servers?

I read them as UltraSPARC IV processors, which have a 0.75 core factor.

4*0.75 = 3 Oracle processors required for each server.

 

Check that with the Oracle core factor table.

What is FNMS calculating?

Re: I couldn't decide the number of licenses in use by processor matric.

Hi friend, thank you for you replying.

I agree on your thought but if possible, could you please check these point?

the server acct1 and 2 have UltraSparc IV which is known as 2 physical core per processor.

as attachment from me, there are txt file for querying cpu by lms. in this file the cpu information is shown as following.

as far as I know, these means the server have 4 physical processor and each processor have 2 physical core(UltraSparc IV)

then, 8 core must be right. am I right?

========================= CPUs ===============================================

A 2, 18 1350 16.0 US-IV 3.1
B 3, 19 1350 16.0 US-IV 3.1

Re: I couldn't decide the number of licenses in use by processor matric.

Hi Friend, as I mentioned it, I would like to review again.

the CPU model is UltraSparc IV and the number of CPUs are 4 in the attachment.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UltraSPARC_IV 

above link is explaining how many physical cores do this CPU have. so I think the number of licenses for this server is 8. but now flexera is showing 4.

can anybody help me to understand it correctly?

Re: I couldn't decide the number of licenses in use by processor matric.

It is possible that these are a partitional Solaris ZONE, which means that this virtual machine is not using the full capacity of your Solaris box.  This would explain why the number of cores being reported is less than the physical server.
