Processor licensing

In the processor licensing mode a license is required for each physical
or virtual processor like explained in
http://www.microsoft.com/sql/howtobuy/default.mspx

->But what about dual core processor?
->And what about clustering? (if a user install 2 server in cluster mode)

tnx

Hi Enorme,

You pay per soocket. So a dual-core can run on a single-core license.
And if you have a quad-code CPU with hyperthreading (do such beasts even
exist?), you'd have eight logical processors and still have to pay for
only a single processor license.
>->And what about clustering? (if a user install 2 server in cluster mode)
If only one server is active and the other is a passice server, used
only to take over from the active server in case of an emergency, you
only need a license for the active server. The passive server can't have
more processors than the active server, though.

If you have two active servers (e.g. using one to offload some of the
reporting tasks), you'll have to license both servers.

Licensing is per processor, not per core. So if you have one dual core
processor it still counts as one.
In clustering, I believe that you dont have to pay for the 'standby' server
if you do not use it for anything else (if its just standby you only need
one license for two servers in cluster).

Hi MC,

May I suggest that you fix your system clock? The NNTP headers show that
your message was sent on Friday, 15:41 UTC/GMT, but the date on your
message shows as Thursday 19:00 UTC/GMT. That's almost 24 hours
difference.

hi, I have a software which has licensing (enabled through flexlm). Now, an end user can build apps (As loadable modules) using this base software. I am introducing a new feature, which I am providing as a .so . The development teams, release schedules, etc. are completely different for the base software and the new .so . 1. Is it possible for me to enable licensing for the loadable .so ?

Greetings, I am running DB2 Workgroup Edition on an Intel box with two physical CPUs. It is running Windows with hyperthreading. Thus, the operating system thinks it has 4 cpus. I am about to upgrade to another dual CPU box, but this one runs the new dual core chip. So, after hyperthreading, it will look like there are 8 CPUs. Anybody know how DB2 Workgroup Edition will react? Furthermore, will I be in violation of my license?

When I run my VB.NET application, it loads a large amount of data upon startup. When I checked Task Manager, it showed that roughly 25% +/- of the processor was being used. When I run the same program on an XP desktop, processor usage goes to 100% until all of the data is loaded. I checked the WSRM (Windows System Resource Manager) and the program is not being limited in it's processor or memory usage. Can anyone tell me why this occurs?...
