Re: Memory issue with Oracle 10g database on Sun Server T5140 with Solaris 10

Took a little digging, but the Sun server table is at http://www.oracle.com/corporate/contracts/library/sun_server_table.pdf
The reduced core multiplier is also listed in the definitions on the
Technology price list
(http://www.oracle.com/corporate/pricing/pricelists.html) on page 9.
One does have to wonder why Oracle considers these CPUs to be less productive or at least that's how I interpret their move to discount the CPUs.
