As the notion of Green Computing becomes more popular in the IT world, new power saving features start to appear in both computer hardware and software. The difficulty of leveraging existing means of power management and control increases with the scale of operations, making a networked approach to the problem a necessity. In this paper we present the SMOA Devices architecture, a distributed solution for monitoring and management of power consumption in computer systems. We discuss its features and characteristics, and explain what makes it suitable for a broad range of power saving and management applications.
