1
Measuring and analyzing the energy use of enterprise computing systems Xiuming Zhang

2
System Deployment Powernet: a hybrid sensor network that monitors the power and utilization of the IT systems in a large academic building Over more than two years 250+individual computing devices One power meter per device

3
Appliance Types Measured

4
Extrapolating to the Whole Building

5
Power Share by Type 4 types: PC, LCD, server, switch

6
PC Binned into 3 categories – Laptops – Low-end – High-end 742 in total – 456: description available. The other: assume same distribution.

7
LCD

8
Lower brightness & use dark backgrounds

9
Server Monitors 32 of the 500 servers Calculated average power: 233 W Estimated total power of 500 servers: 117 kW

10
Switch

12
PC CPU Utilization 95% of the computers have a utilization rate lower than 30%

13
Popular Workloads

14
Network Switch Utilization The demand never exceeded 200 Mbps

15
Network Switch Utilization Highly underutilized Total network demand < 1000 Mbps 100% of the time.

16
Discussions

17
How does the sampling frequency affect what the data reveal? Too small hide the anomalies

18
How big is the variance between two instances of same model?

19
Does sampling a few devices provide an accurate average measurement? shows the wide distribution of desktop power

20
Does sampling a few devices provide an accurate average measurement? Large sample size desired for PC 1,000,000 random samples of size 5, 10, and 20, drawing from 69 machines

21
Do short-term measurements accurately reflect long-term power draw? One-month scale yields an acceptable error

22
Are Energy Star data representative? Energy Star Standard does not consider PCs under load

23
Thanks for the attention!
