Analyzing Power Efficiency

Measuring application power consumption on the Linux* operating system

Power consumption is a common and growing concern in large compute installations, whether they be HPC, Cloud or Enterprise: facility power and space limitations are making it increasingly difficult to support the explosive growth of computational needs. Thus we need to dig deeper on how to best reduce power consumption at multiple levels, from hardware to software. In this article I will describe some of the known approaches and tools available to tackle this challenge.

RTFB Episode 3: Analyzing Power Efficiency in Apps


Meet Khang Nguyen and learn about analyzing power efficiency in apps. In his first blog, Khang provides guidance on what are the most common pitfalls in analyzing application power consumption and then he introduces his second blog that covers how to use the Windows Performance Toolkit in order to root-cause power issues.
