Oracle software counter

There are two distinct ways of counting Oracle software. Be sure that your Oracle models are set up accurately.

Note: Oracle license calculation types are available in the Software Counter form after you activate the Oracle process pack.

Oracle software that uses the Oracle Processor license calculation type counts by the number of processors on a server. This license calculation type must exist in the Software Installation [cmdb_sam_sw_install] table. A software installation record must be inserted with a discovery model that matches the correct Oracle software. For an install to be counted by an Oracle processor counter, the Installed on field on the Software Installation form should reference a configuration item with a Metric type of Oracle Processor.

Oracle software that uses the Oracle Named User or Oracle Named User Plus license calculation types count by number of unique users or number of unique users plus devices. This license calculation type must exist in the Software Usage [cmdb_sam_sw_usage] table. A software installation record must be inserted with a discovery model that matches the correct Oracle software. For a usage to be counted by an Oracle New User or Oracle New User Plus counter, the Target host field on the Software Usage [cmdb_sam_sw_usage] table should reference a configuration item with a Metric type of Oracle NU or Oracle NUP.
