ASR 1001-x 20Gb/s licensing

This is so complicated for me to understand, if I have 2x10gig port channel as an inside and 2x10gig port channels as an outside?

on the peak hours close to 20 gig is coming on my inside port channel and 20 gigs are going out of the outside interface at the same time,

what type of a throughput_20g license should I buy?

throughput_20g with count of 4 interface or 2 interfaces or throughput_10g with count of 4 interface? vendor didn't know the answer sorry..

Throughput licenses are honored based, so no purchase required as of Now.

However you still need to purchase every 10G port you are going to use, e.g. on 1002 HX first 4 ports comes with the device purchase, but anything after that requires a license

but what about the port count?

My understanding is, the license covers the total aggregate of bandwidth crossing the backplane.  I.e. use the sum of all your interfaces' ingress bandwidth.

Ah and oh.

I thought you were dealing with a performance type license, similar to what's found on the ISR 4K series.  (Sorry, it has been a while since I had to deal with ASR 10g licenses - I forgot they had them for 10g ports.)

What you're really asking about is 10g port licenses.  For those, my understanding is you need one for each 10g port you wish to use.

As to what your reference is saying, my understanding of that is if you have just an active 10g evaluation license, both 10g ports will be usable, whereas a 10g permanent license is per port.  Further, if you were running an active 10g evaluation license and you activate a (single) 10g port license, you'll lose the other port, as the permanent license overrides the evaluation license.
