License Model

Jump to solution

Hi, I have an easy question.

Is the licensing model is for a physical CPU regardless of the number of cores the processor may have?

Thanks in advance

Correct, here's some good links on this, currently it is capped at quad-core per socket.

sorry I have found the answer.

Page 37 of the Installation & Upgrade Guide;

"Dual‐core processors count as one processor."

Thanks
