Harbin institution of technology Main technologies to improve energy effective Hardware level: Low power devices System level: Power-management mechanisms in different levels Application level: Consolidate with virtualization Power-management mechanisms Circuit level: Clock-gating System level: DPM Processor level: DVFS/DFS/DVS, C-state 6 To Shutdown unused component or circuit
Harbin institution of technology According to the present researches: C-state can save up to 44%  energy DVFS can save 13%  to 70%  energy Limitation of present research All the results come from particular system with special application or SPAC CPU. Few works can consider the effect of workload to the energy consumption. 7

Harbin institution of technology 10 Relationship of the power and the frequency: Relationship of the voltage and frequency: k: is a circuit dependent constant V t : is the threshold voltage C : is the capacitance of the transistor gates f : is the frequency V dd : is the supply voltage of the device. P static : represents power consumed from leakage mechanisms., Note that: The operation frequency almost has a linear relationship with voltage. BUT, decreasing the frequency and keeping the voltage constant does not contribute much to energy saving. It just saves the cost of cache misses .
Harbin institution of technology DVFS Modeling Defining the amount of computation/ instructions for a task/workload is W, and then within a period of run-to-completion, the energy consumption of task is is energy consumption based on dynamic power is energy consumption based on leakage power Summary: DVFS: compute the energy consumption of processor but ignore the energy cost of cache misses. 11 C: capacitance f : frequency V dd : runtime voltage P static : leakage power V peak : peak voltage T r : Time to finish task T s :Time to sleep W: workload, the instruction cycles of a task T r+ T s = W/f d
Harbin institution of technology C-state Modeling Defining the amount of computation/ instructions for a task/workload is W, and then within a period of run-to- completion, the energy consumption of task is T r+ T s is the interval time of a task run-to-completion based on DVFS T r+ T s = W/f d Summary: C-state operates at higher voltage, So C-state finish a task faster than DVFS. If all the tasks is completed, system changes to sleep mode. is very low, which can be ignored. 12 C:capacitance f :frequency V dd : runtime voltage P static : leakage power V peak : peak voltage T r : Time to finish task T s :Time to sleep W: workload, the instruction cycles of a task
Harbin institution of technology The derivative of energy model 13 The extreme point in energy model shows that Workload W is not the key influence factor to the minimal energy consumption The minimal energy consumption is only depended on the characteristics of devices In order to minimize the energy consumption and also try to find the best voltage, we can get the derivative of energy models
Harbin institution of technology C-state becomes popular because P static (leakage power) increase effects We can consider time t as the workload arrival time, when, rewrite the equation 14 In order to evaluate the energy effective of DVFS and C-state We get the difference value of the two energy models
Harbin institution of technology For Poisson distribution workload The average arrival rate of task is λ 0 ; The average interval time of task is t=1/ λ 0 Summary: DVFS and C-state save the same energy in this situation When deadline t deadline < t, C-state saves more energy than DVFS; When the arrival rate λ>λ 0, DVFS is better than C-state 15
Harbin institution of technology 16 For Periodic distribution workload C-state saves more energy if and only if the deadline is smaller than period, i.e. t deadline < t; DVFS does not shutdown the processor after the task finished.

Harbin institution of technology Evaluate the energy effective of DVFS & C-state with different task models The most energy saving voltage is only depended on the characteristics of the device itself. The energy effective of DVFS and C-state is closely related to the arrival rate of the tasks and the features of workloads. For the heavy workload systems, DVFS is better in energy saving than another. The result is consistent with the conclusion in . 18
Harbin institution of technology In this paper, we mainly focus on processor and ignore the energy consumption during state transition. So, future works will be: To analyze the effects of cache hit rate on energy effective in the whole system. To take the reliability into consideration. To explore the schedulability analysis methods for the energy and reliability critical system. 19
