Multi-core CPUs Db2 licencing
I am trying to learn about multi-core CPU licencing for DB2. Does IBM /DB2 charge for processors based on each core?

Any pointers, white papers, links would be appreciated.

Which DB2?
- DB2 z/OS is licensed on MSUs (ie on system capacity - of which multiple
CPUs is only one component);
- DB2 LUW "yes, it is licensed on a per-CPU basis" - see, eg http://www-
1.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21008057;
- other DB2s - don't know.

Amit,
DB2 LUW ESE is licensed per CPU with a proviso that all CPUs on the
server need to be licensed.
DB2 LUW WSE is licensed for up to 4 CPUs
