HP Itenium Hardware with 8 Core. Integrity Virtual Machine 4.0 Software at host level to create guests Virtual Machines named as VM01 , VM02 and VM03 . Each VM is running with HP-UX 11i v2 (B.11.23).
HP Virtual Machine has been Created and the CPU has been allocated with the following command :
hpvmmodify -P VM01 -c 2:1:8
The - C command is followed by an argument count:min:max . The command allocates 2 CPU to VM01 , with a boundary range for CPU as minimum 1 and Maximum 8.
However the specifying the range in Integrity Virtual Machine does not mean vCPU count can automatically step up beyond 2 based on application load . To step up the CPU from 2 to any value within 8 the administrator has to shutdown the VM and manually issue hpvmmodify command.
We would like to know what would be the SubCapacity license requirement for the IBM application( Lotus Notes , WebSphere or DB2 as applicable for the organization) running on VM01 . Will it be 2 or 8 ?
