Processor/CPU licensing: Intel Hyper-threading throws off count

Some processors have a dual core, single chip that appears to be two CPUs within the Oracle kernel (the Oracle kernel determines the number of CPUs on a system during start-up). This is the case with Intel Hyper-threading, where the number of physical CPUs doubles when running on Linux or Windows with a hyper-threading setting of OS or BIOS. Oracle will charge a CPU license fee for the extra cores in multiple core CPUs.┬áTherefore, you will need to license for […]
