Yep, exactly right:

For the purpose of counting the number of processors which require licensing for a Sun UltraSPARC T1 processor with 4, 6 or 8 cores at 1.0 gigahertz or 8 cores at 1.2 gigahertz for only those servers specified on the Sun Server Table which can be accessed at http://oracle.com/contracts , n cores shall be determined by multiplying the total number of cores by a factor of .25.

We're getting closer and closer to "power units" all the time

Isn't that "2" CPUs for an 8-core? Or did the licensing change yet again? It was recently .25xCore for SPARC 8-ways.

	From an Oracle licensing perspective, 8 cores in the niagra
processor count as one processor for Oracle licenseing purposes.         
	Thanks,

Would a parallel query not use all the cores, or heavy concurrent access by users? Imagine the licensing cost if you had two or three of these in a rac? -- http://www.freelists.org/webpage/oracle-l
