Consequences of disabling CPUID

Disabling CPUID will have a minor impact to reporting in Snow License Manager but will not impact data quality.

  • If Snow Inventory Agent reports that scanned hardware is changed, Data Update Job will process data again, which will result in a slightly extended first Data Update Job run time for the first execution after the Snow Inventory Agent for Windows has reported in. This increase in run time is often insignificant and will not be noticed.

  • CPU hardware information will be reported but look differently. Here are some examples, and bear in mind that Family and Manufacturer are not used in calculations:
