IIRC what matters is the Shared Pool capacity. I think the Usage Count
might get confused if you have 2VP but 1EC. But the Shared Pool should be
configured to be the same number of cores as your licensed max...

How do you see how you are using your licenses of IBM i when using
multiple LPARs?
WRKLICINF. I see a 5051 and on some systems a 5053.

If I look at the 5051 I see an entry like
Usage Count Information:
All partitions . . . . . : 12.00
Local partition . . . . . : 4.00
If I add up all the partitions 'local partition' entries I get 19. This
confuses me as this number is greater than 12.
I'm using shared processing pools. Basically to get by licensing rules
from some vendors. (Why pay to run their software on your whole box when
only one partition runs it?)
When I look at processor on the HMC and add up the 'Allocated' for the
lpars of IBM i I get 10.5.
