Computing platforms are consuming more and more energy due to the increasing number of nodes composing them. To minimize the operating costs of these platforms many techniques have been used. Dynamic voltage and frequency scaling (DVFS) is one of them. It reduces the frequency of a CPU to lower its energy consumption. However, lowering the frequency of a(More)
Dynamic Voltage Frequency Scaling (DVFS) can be applied to modern CPUs. This technique is usually used to reduce the energy consumed by a CPU while computing. Thus, decreasing the frequency reduces the power consumed by the CPU. However, it can also significantly affect the performance of the executed program if it is compute bound and if a low CPU(More)
It is widely accepted that the asynchronous parallel methods are more suitable than the synchronous ones on a grid architecture. Indeed, they outperform the synchronous methods, because they overlap the communications of the synchronous methods with computations. However, they also usually execute more iterations than the synchronous ones and thus consume(More)
