Processor (license type)

A specialization of the Processor Points license on which the points rules are fixed, and license consumption is defined as one point per installed processor on all computers where the software is installed.

Tip: While it is possible to over-ride the points per processor for individual computers, it is best practice to keep this license type consuming one point per processor, and switch to the Processor Points license for cases where you need to specify multiple points.
Tip: For capacity-based licenses, if you allocate the license to an individual device but inventory does not show any relevant applications (linked to the license) installed on that same device, consumption on that device is calculated as for a device license (a count of one per device, regardless of the device capacity). You can manually adjust the points consumed using the Overridden consumption value (consumption is then updated at the next compliance calculation). If corrected inventory is later imported that shows installation of relevant applications, you also need to remove the manual assignment of points.
Product use rights Multiple use, downgrade rights, upgrade rights, and licensing on VM hosts.
Group assignment

Group assignment is supported.


The sum of processor points calculated for all computers that run one or more of the applications linked to the license and have a match in the points table. By default, each processor is limited to a value of single point.


Computers within the scope (restrictions) of the license where the properties of the computer (processor type, computer model, and number of processors) match one of the license points rules.


If sum of points from all installed computers (shown in Consumed) is less than or equal to the points available under this license (shown in Total licensed).
