Complete System Power Estimation Using Processor Performance Events

  title={Complete System Power Estimation Using Processor Performance Events},
  author={William Lloyd Bircher and Lizy Kurian John},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Computers},
This paper proposes the use of microprocessor performance counters for online measurement of complete system power consumption. The approach takes advantage of the "trickle-down” effect of performance events in microprocessors. While it has been known that CPU power consumption is correlated to processor performance, the use of well-known performance-related events within a microprocessor such as cache misses and DMA transactions to estimate power consumption in memory and disk and other… CONTINUE READING
