# Product conversion ratio

FlexNet Manager Suite 2021 R1 (On-Premises)

For an IBM VPC license, this ratio defines the factor used to move from the total number of
virtual processor cores (VPCs) assigned in all devices running the same product (on this
license), to the number of license entitlements consumed. Some products have a ratio of VPCs
to entitlements that is:

- Less costly (for example, 2:1, so that running 2 VPCs consumes 1 license entitlement) – or put the other way around, the total VPC count is halved to arrive at the number of license entitlements consumed
- More costly (for example, 1:2, so that every 1 VPC consumes 2 license entitlements) – in this case, the total VPC count is doubled to get the license entitlements consumed.

Available only for `IBM VPC` licenses.
