The digital random number generator (DRNG) behind Intel® Data Protection Technology with Secure Key provides high-quality random numbers that are accessible via the CPU instruction RDRAND.
Applications in data centers process huge workloads every day. Many of them are CPU intensive, disk I/O intensive, network I/O intensive or a combination thereof.
In my previous blog, “Detecting CPU-bound Applications in Server Systems”, I discus
Unlike a lot of previous recent blogs, this series is about power management in general. At the very end of the series, I’ll write specifically about the Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessor.
Power management policy has evolved over the years.
How about the future? Have we reached the pinnacle of power management?
