With SQL Anywhere CPU licensing, how do you count CPU's
if the processors are dual core?

If a server has two processors, each a dual core CPU, does
this configuration require a 2 CPU license of SQL Anywhere
or does it require a 4 CPU license?

A dual core CPU should be seen as a single CPU for licensing purposes by the
database server.
