Accurate Fine-Grained Processor Power Proxies
Found in: 2012 45th Annual IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Microarchitecture (MICRO)
By Wei Huang,Charles Lefurgy,William Kuk,Alper Buyuktosunoglu,Michael Floyd,Karthick Rajamani,Malcolm Allen-Ware,Bishop Brock
Issue Date:December 2012
pp. 224-234
There are not yet practical and accurate ways to directly measure core power in a microprocessor. This limits the granularity of measurement and control for computer power management. We overcome this limitation by presenting an accurate runtime per-core p...
