Re: For those installing Oracle SE, what systems meet the 4 socket

We're using SE1. My understanding from reading the definition of
"processor" in the Definitions section of the Oracle Technology Price List
is that the SE and SE1 licenses are NOT subject to the same rules as EE:

"When licensing Oracle programs with Standard Edition One or Standard
Edition in the product name, a processor is counted equivalent to an occupied socket; however, in the case of multi-chip modules, each chip in the multi-chip module is
counted as one occupied socket. For example, a multicore chip based server with an Oracle Processor Core Factor of 0.25 installed and/or running the program (other than Standard."

So, if I'm understanding this correctly, an SE1 license for two processors would, for example, cover a server that has two Intel or AMD multi-core processors. We're using six-core processors. So that two-socket SE1 license covers the 12 cores. Am I misunderstanding?
