    PowerCenter SE (4-7) per CPU-cores Multi-core Multi-OS Production License

    New Member

      Dear Sir/Madam,

       

      We have asked to quote for below license in production.

       

      PowerCenter SE (4-7) per CPU-cores Multi-core Multi-OS Production License

       

      But our production server has 4 physical CPUs and 8 processes ( 4 more logical cores are running). Please find the processor information below.

       

      psrinfo -pv

       

      The UltraSPARC-IV+ physical processor has 2 virtual processors (0, 16)
      The UltraSPARC-IV+ physical processor has 2 virtual processors (1, 17)
      The UltraSPARC-IV+ physical processor has 2 virtual processors (2, 18)
      The UltraSPARC-IV+ physical processor has 2 virtual processors (3, 19)

       

      Can you please confirm above license will work in production server or we have to request for more CPU license. Your help on this one greatly appreciated.

       


      Thanks,

      -Ravi

            Ravi,

             

            It is difficult to determine whether you are in compliance with Informatica Licensing with the given info. By looking at your Processor type, I am assuming that you are having a Solaris server. Correct me if I am wrong.

             

            Run the following command to find out number of cores on the Solaris machine and let me know the output.

             

            kstat cpu_info | grep core_id | awk '{ print $2}' | uniq | wc -l

              Hi Srikanth,

               

              kstat cpu_info | grep core_id | awk '{ print $2}' | uniq | wc -l didn't work as core_id word not found in the command. I have executed kstat cpu_info, please find command output below.

                By looking at your License information, you are requesting for a 4 to 7 (Multi Core) CPU license with multiple OS types options. This means, you can install Informatica on a machine with a QuadCore processor (4 CPUs) irrespective of the OS types (Windows, Solaris, Linux, AIX etc.).

                 

                However we still need to find out the number of cores currently available on your Prod server. For some reason, core_id value is missing in your cpu_info command. Are you running the cpu_info with root privilege? or would you be able to request your Unix Admin to provide the information about the number of cores on your Prod machine?

                  Any update on this? If not, can you mark this as appropriate?
