In my first blog entry, I showed how simple it was to improve the accuracy of the power draw reported by the Intel® Energy Checker SDK’s stock ESRV simulated device library. I also opened-up for a nice research project consisting of using various system-level data to model more precisely a host system’s power draw. Data such as processor load, memory and I/O usage, P-State or C-State residency are good candidates to explore.
What is PowerInformer?
Have you ever noticed a sudden drop in the battery life of your laptop, and suspect it’s the result of the application you installed last week?
Have you ever wondered whether your application satisfies that 2-hour while-on-battery runtime requirement?
Have you ever tried to use Perfmon to gather power related statistics and given up after suffering serious information overload?
