Energy efficiency and power capping are critical concerns in server and cloud computing systems. They face growing challenges due to dynamic power variations from new client-directed web applications, as well as complex behaviors due to multicore resource sharing and hardware heterogeneity. This paper presents a new operating system facility called "power containers" that accounts for and controls the power and energy usage of individual fine-grained requests in multicore servers. This facility… CONTINUE READING
