Section 3.a.i of the EULA states:

  1. The number of CPUs per License Server may not exceed the number of CPUs on your accepted order. For clarification purposes, a dual-core machine is deemed to be a 2-CPU machine for purposes of this Agreement.

You means the pgp command line is based on machine's all core counts if there machine has multi core, right?

Do you have any document for correct licensing last version?

If you have a two CPU machine, and each CPU has two cores, you need a 4-CPU license.

I'm not sure what sort of document you are looking for.  Do you mean a FAQ or other "official" document that describes what I have just written?
