RE: Oracle license requirements for unused options

Yes, I fat fingered something do I'm resending.   This one should be copy and 
pastable, however for formatting you can always go to the Metalink note

This could possibly help... It's as close as I have come.   You can put 
whatever NAME you wish from the dba_feature_usage_statistics view.  I just 
added 'Diagnostic Pack' for you.

Let me know if you get something better.   I'm still looking for Gartners 
warning about 'Total Recall','Advanced Compression','Active Data Guard' and 
'Real Application Testing' being separately chargeable which I do not see 
listed in this view.   (Gartner Publication Date: 6 February 2009, ID Number: 
G00164790).  (btw someone just handed me the article... so I guess they are 
about three years late... anyway, I'm looking for a definitive way :).

So if anyone has info on these other four...

  SELECT  a.*
  FROM    (
          SELECT  dfs.*,
                  ROW_NUMBER() OVER (PARTITION BY name ORDER BY version
  DESC) rno
          FROM    DBA_FEATURE_USAGE_STATISTICS dfs
          WHERE   detected_usages > 0
          AND     name IN

Subject: RE: Oracle license requirements for unused options

Revisiting this thread from back in May...
Does anyone know of a method in 10g to check whether a Diagnostic Pack option 
was ever used?  I'm concerned that someone might at some point have run an 
awrrpt on a dev database without realizing that required a license and want to 
check whether it has ever happened.

For 11g Oracle provides scripts to check this (option_usages.sql) but they 
don't seem to work in 10g.

Appreciate any help in advance.



BTW - people might find this of interest:
http://searchoracle.techtarget.com/news/2240035131/Common-traps-in-Oracle-licensing-audits
I have verified that when we uninstall certain options and then patch the 
database the options come back.


Thanks,
Jay Miller

Also, even if you didn't install an option as a base install applying the 
10.2.0.4 patch will install some options automatically.

The impression I'm getting is that whether Oracle charges for installed and 
unused options depends on whether you're on good terms with them or not.

I think Brandon has a point.    The management packs are all installed, and you 
must constantly go in and 'uncheck' them in EM.   Oracle will install 
everything by default unless you can stop it, and for example 'partitioning' is 
used by EM, whether you use it or not.

So Spatial Data, or partitioning, OLAP, RAT, Data Mining... seem to go in 
easily enough, but have you tried to remove them (which includes checking that 
you are doing it correctly)?

Having said that, I removed OLAP which I believe was all I needed to have 
everything removed for 11g. But 10g can still display options from previous DBA 
as shown by Sqlplus when logging in, (so 'upgrading' would keep them).

Alas,

Subject: RE: Oracle license requirements for unused options


I'm still not convinced that a license is required for unused options.  I think 
there is a key distinction between the documentation that mentions licensing 
based on usage and those that mention licensing based on installation.  My 
interpretation is as follows:



*         installation-based licensing - only pertains to the main database 
server software, e.g. "Oracle Database SE/EE" must be licensed for all 
processors on the host where it is installed

*         usage-based licensing - only pertains to specific pieces of add-on 
functionality such as the extra options (e.g. Partitioning) and management 
packs (e.g. Diagnostics Pack).



I'm not positive if that's correct, so don't take my word for it, but 
everything I've read so far seems to be pretty consistent on those two points.



Regards,

Brandon

I'm in total agreement with you regarding the wording of the vast

majority of Oracle docs



<snip>



Hopefully though, the above should show that "installed and/or run" as

frequently quoted by Oracle in their documents, means installing an

option or feature does require a license.
