SySAM Licensing Checkout

If SAP ASE is licensed using a per-processor license type, it checks out a license quantity equal to the number of processors, or, if insufficiet licenses are available, allows a 30-day grace period.

If the number of processors is dynamically increased while running and the software cannot check out additional licenses, the software permits a 30-day grace period. If sufficient licenses are not made available within the grace period, the software shuts down. Decreasing the number of processors that the software can use while it is running does not reduce the required license quantity. You must restart the SAP ASE server on the correct number of processors.
