No you have to license all the physical CPUs on the ESXi hosts within the cluster that hosts the ORacle VM, this is why we used to create dedicated Oracle Cluster where we use less physical sockets

Have a read of the VMware Support policy on Oracle

https://www.vmware.com/support/policies/oracle-support.html

http://www.vmware.com/content/dam/digitalmarketing/vmware/en/pdf/partners/oracle/oracle-databases-on-vmware-best-practices-guide.pdf

You will need to obtain an Oracle Site license, all license all the physical cores.

I have 2 hosts in  1 Vmware cluster. I will be hosting Oracle VM in these 2 hosts.
Each hosts has 2* 18 cores.
So in total there will be 36 + 36 = 72 Cores.

For this do i need to license oracle for 72 cores or only for 36 cores.
Is there any concept for intel processor form factor of 0.5.

Please clarify.
