Oracle and computers with zero CPUs

How do you license a computer with zero CPUs? Of course, there are no such computers but still according to Oracle’s Grid Control this is not always the case 🙂 Have a look:

These hardware inventions should not bring us any cost, shouldn’t they 🙂

It is worth asking the question are there any computers with zero IO devices and NULL CPU boards:

Looks like also that the number of CPU boards cannot be visible for some computers, not to mention that although the documentation claims that “MGMT$CSA_COLLECTIONS displays top-level information about all client configurations”, I can still see nothing from this view:

You notice that this is in Grid Control 11g? I remember similar cases in 10g as well, here is an old snapshot of mine:

When will computers run without CPUs? But it is like a person without a brain says a colleague of mine.

And finally, is Oracle wrong or did HP forget to put a ventilator in the computer 🙂
