Considering the increasing importance of carbon free networking solutions, several energy-efficient networking systems have been proposed and evaluated in literature. One significant challenge is how to encompass actions targeting energy savings and possible corresponding degradations in network QoS (Quality of Service). This paper presents an(More)
A significant number of green, energy-saving network protocols have been invented in recent years in response to demand for reducing the amount of energy consumed by network infrastructure. In this paper, we report on the difficulties we encountered when building an SDN environment that could emulate energy saving protocols operating at different layers of(More)
The energy demand for operating Information and Communication Technology (ICT) systems has been growing, implying in high operational costs and consequent increase of carbon emissions. Both in datacenters and telecom infrastructures, the networks represent a significant amount of energy spending. Given that, there is an increased demand for energy(More)
Energy efficiency features are being integrated in network protocols and management systems. Simulations can provide in put on how a particular algorithm would perform in different network conditions. However, building an environment that is able to comprehensively account for interactions between different network functions is difficult. A combination of(More)
The energy demand for operating Information and Communication Technologies is growing, implying in high operational costs and consequent carbon emissions. Both in datacenters and in telecom infrastructures, the networks represent a significant amount of energy spending. This implies in an increased demand for energy efficiency, and several functionalities(More)
Green sustainability-oriented features have become common in network nodes and protocols. Running a network in an energy-efficient way is an important concern of network operators and datacenter networks. The implementation and coordination of the myriad of existing network features poses a challenging task. The energy efficiency capabilities must be(More)
The identification of redundant computation is in general undecidable and prevents the obtainment of an ideal case as reference to the measurement of the remaining unexploited potential for redundancy removal and to the evaluation of code optimization effectiveness. This paper presents a methodology for optimization effectiveness analysis by observing the(More)
Energy efficiency features are being integrated in network protocols and management systems in order to make the infrastructure more sustainable and, at the same time, address the growing users' demand. Many of such features affect the network in different ways, thus yielding trade-offs. They can affect the reliability and availability of the network when(More)
A technique to speed up stencil computation is introduced. Computation and data reuse schemes are developed for its application to 1- and 3-dimensional stencils. The approach traverses the data domain fewer times than a state-of-the-art, straightforward iterative stencil implementation would. Performance results are shown for a variety of platforms,(More)
