Multiprocessor License

Hi all,

My company is using currently using InterBase 7.1. We've obviously had it for a long time and the company is currently heavily investing in a number of IT related projects. As the database is still working, it's not at the top of the list and so an upgrade is a little further down the line.

Trouble is that we seem to only have the server license which only allows us to use a single processor and I don't think the database has much of an understand about multiple cores. We experience huge lag times on our CRM which freezes for the entire company for minutes at a time. We purchased an XE7 license but this doesn't seem to work with 7.1.

From what I understand, the processor license for 7.1 stop being sold years ago. Is there any way for us to get our hands on the license?

Thanks for the help.

Only advise is to contact sales directly and speak to someone. You might be
able to do something like agree to buy a copy of hte latest and they will
generate the older CPU license for oyu or something. Unfortunately you might
have troubles finding a sale person that understands IB's licensing from back then.
