Server details to procure Microsoft volume licensing

Hi
I have to renew my Microsoft volume licensing and our re-seller had said that Microsoft have now moved to a ‘per core’ licensing model for Windows Server.
We have 3 ESX host and 1 SAN       and we use VMware. Please see the attached the requested details.

Quantity of physical processors on Host- 1 and Number of cores in each physical processor
Quantity of physical processors on Host- 2 and Number of cores in each physical processor
Quantity of physical processors on Host- 3 and Number of cores in each physical processor


Will i be able to get these details form Vsphere client? Please post me tutorials  as how to get these details.
Thanks

Microsoft licensing for VMWare kind of sucks, how many VMs do you have, you may be better off getting datacenter licensing.

might want to consult your licensing vendor, probably not datacenter unless you plan to grow, but at the same time microsoft is screwy.

For example, if you migrate a VM more than once in a 90 day period, microsoft will require you to license the guest on both servers.  So if you do any autoload balancing or vmotion on your vms they want more money.  18 VMs can quickly be 36 or 54 licensed VMs to be complaint.  Then datacenter makes a lot of sense.

Plus through June 1, 2017, Microsoft is offering a convert to Hyper-V promo where you get 2016 Datacenter free and only pay the SA.  Might me an option.  They are not going to force you to move all your servers to Hyper-V, so you can still have ESXi as your hypervisor.
