To setup 'minimum_core_count'


I have a 40-core vCPU system. I would like to apply the 4 unit license below.
For this purpose, the value of ‘minimum_core_count’ was given to 30.
Because 4 unit is 32 core.
Am I taking the right approach?

In another way,
Does the system need to be offline by number of cores?

memsql>  SHOW STATUS EXTENDED LIKE "%capacity%";
    | Variable_name            | Value   |
    | License_capacity         | 4 units |
    | Maximum_cluster_capacity | 4 units |
    | Used_cluster_capacity    | 6 units |
    3 rows in set (0.00 sec)

    memsql> select @@minimum_core_count;
    | @@minimum_core_count |
    |                    4 |
    1 row in set (0.01 sec)


What error message(s) are you getting? Are you trying to install the free version license?

Your whole machine (bare machine or VM) is measured to see how many units it has, for purposes of the license. If the machine is too big, running the free version won’t work. So consider getting a smaller instance (on the cloud) or running a VM on your bigger machine that has total vcpus/memory under the free version limit.
