Q

Using the CPU_Count parameter in Oracle partitioning

Are you allowed to use the CPU_Count parameter in Oracle partitioning? Learn whether this is acceptable in this Q&A from Oracle licensing expert Scott Rosenberg.

Is it legal or valid to buy one perpetual processor license for one Windows server that has two CPUs and set the CPU_COUNT parameter to 1, forcing the software to run in just one CPU?

No, Oracle does not recognize the use of the CPU_Count parameter as any type of acceptable partitioning.
