ProcessorIdentifierAlgorithmExcludeClockSpeedFromProcessorName Property
Gets or sets whether or not the clock speed should be omitted when generating ProcessorNameIdentifier objects. IMPORTANT: Setting this to true will require some users to reactivate.

Namespace: com.softwarekey.Client.Licensing
Assembly: PLUSManaged (in PLUSManaged.dll) Version:
public bool ExcludeClockSpeedFromProcessorName { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: Boolean
Caution note Caution

Setting this property to true will change the resulting ProcessorNameIdentifier values generated. As a consequence, computers which have already been activated and include the clock speed in the processor name will require reactivation. However, it may be possible to compensate for this change using customized validation and fuzzy matching.

As with any identifier algorithm that derives its value from hardware information, the processor name comes from the driver provided by the manufacturer. In some/many cases (Intel processors in particular), the processor name may include the clock speed. Some examples of processor name values with and without the clock speed included by the driver is below.

  • Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4790K CPU @ 4.00GHz
  • AMD FX(tm)-8120 Eight-Core Processor
Note Note

With virtualization software, it is possible for the clock speed to change when settings change in the hypervisor.
