How many ports which should need upgrade (4 ports or 8 ports).

Hi

I want to verify that my switch need additional more port license or not.

When I run lecenseshow, It show info as below.

admin> licenseShow
demo:
    Web license
    Zoning license
    Fabric license
    Extended Fabric license
    Fabric Watch license
    Performance Monitor license
    Trunking license
demo:
    Ports on Demand license - additional 4 port upgrade
    Ports on Demand license - additional 4 port upgrade

My question is as output above, How many ports which should need upgrade (4 ports or 8 ports). I'm sure becuase It show 2 record for additional 4 port upgrade.

Please help to advise.

Thanks

This is the Brocade E200.

Enables “pay-as-you-grow” scalability from
single-switch fabrics to full-fabric enterprise
capabilities with Ports On Demand
scalability from 8 to 12 or 16 ports
in 4-port increments.
