Energy management of memory subsystem is challenging due to performance and thermal constraints. Big energy gains can be obtained by clustering memory accesses, however this also leads to a higher need for cooling due to larger temperatures in active areas of memory. Our solution to memory thermal management problem is based on proactive thermal management(More)
In this work we propose a joint energy, thermal and cooling management technique (JETC) that significantly reduces per server cooling and memory energy costs. Our analysis shows that decoupling the optimization of cooling energy of CPU & memory and the optimization of memory energy leads to suboptimal solutions due to thermal dependencies between CPU and(More)
—In state of the art systems, workload scheduling and server fan speed operate independently leading to cooling inefficiencies. In this work we propose GentleCool, a proactive multi-tier approach for significantly lowering the fan cooling costs without compromising the performance. Our technique manages the fan speed through intelligently allocating the(More)
In this paper we propose a coding scheme for general-purpose applications that can reduce power dissipation, crosstalk noise and crosstalk delay on the bus lines while simultaneously detecting errors at run time. The reduction in power dissipation can be achieved through reducing the bus switching activity. Not only is the switching activity in individual(More)
In this paper, we propose a proactive dynamic thermal management scheme for chip multiprocessors that run multi-threaded workloads. We introduce a new predictor that utilizes the band-limited property of the temperature frequency spectrum. A big advantage of our predictor is that it does not require the costly training phase like ARMA [7]. Our thermal(More)
—In this paper, we propose a multitier approach for significantly lowering the cooling costs associated with fan subsystems without compromising the system performance. Our technique manages the fan speed by intelligently allocating the workload at the core level as well as at the CPU socket level. At the core level we propose a proactive dynamic thermal(More)
—Heterogeneous Multi-Processor Systems on a Chip (MPSoCs) are more complex from a thermal perspective compared to the homogeneous MPSoCs because of their inherent imbalance in power density. In this work we develop TempoMP, a new technique for thermal management of heterogeneous MP-SoCs which leverages multi-parametric optimization along with our novel(More)
We propose a new DVFS algorithm for enterprise systems that elevates performance as a first order control parameter and manages frequency and voltage as a function of performance requirements. We implement our algorithm on real Intel Westmere platform in Linux and demonstrate its ability to reduce the standard deviation from target performance by more than(More)
