ABSTRACT
<p>A new framework automatically generates full-system multicore powermarks, or synthetic programs with desired power characteristics on multicore server platforms. The framework constructs full-system power models with error bounds on the power estimates and guides the design of energy-efficient and cost-efficient server and data center infrastructures.</p>
INDEX TERMS
Stress marks, power viruses, multicore processor, multicore server, power modeling
