About the Product

Datgel Processor Affinity Manager allows older style Windows programs that do not support, or were not designed to take advantage, of multi-core processing to utilise all the cores on a computer, providing better performance for your application and overall system. This is particularly useful where you:

  1. Are using Windows Terminal Server and Remote Desktop to provide a program to several users from the one terminal server; or
  2. Open several instances of a program to work with your projects and documents.

The Processor Affinity Manager program can be associated with any program and will start the program to use a different processor core each time the program is started. By distributing the processes across all the cores of the processor, the Processor Affinity Manager allows multiple instances of the program to utilise the computer's resources more effectively.

You need to complete the installation procedure (see Installation and Licensing) and activate (see Datgel Product Licensing System User Guide) before you can use the Processor Affinity Manager.


12 months support and maintenance is included with the license purchase. For technical support please email or call +61 2 8202 8600.
