We have High CPU Utilization on compute nodes of our Exadata. As we migrate
more applications to our Exadata environment, we are going to run out of
CPU capacity. When talking about capacity, we have no issues for space or
memory. I understand, Oracle offers storage expansion rack if you want to
expand your Exadata storage, and memory expansion kit if you want to expand
memory of your Exadata. I am looking for options to upgrade CPUs on compute
nodes, without requiring us to go to next Exadata rack upgrade. Not sure if
Oracle supports just CPU upgrades on Exadata. I don't see a reason for not
doing so, but just wanted to check if anyone else in the list had to go
through similar experience.
Thanks in advance,
