Coarse-Grained DRAM Power Management

Abstract

− This paper presents an efficient system level power saving method for DRAM with multiple power modes. The proposed method is based on the power aware scheduling algorithm that controls DRAM modules in coarse grain in which the scheduler assigns appropriate power modes to memory banks at context switching time. The method controls the transition of multiple power modes, which is currently available technology, based on the history of gaining processor and memory bank usage of each process. The experimental results demonstrate the efficiency of the proposed schemes in multiprogramming environment.
