DS3. Dynamic Power Management for Hardware Over-Provisioned Systems


Student: Daniel A. Ellsworth (University of Oregon)
Advisor: Allen Malony (University of Oregon)
Abstract: To enable safe operation of hardware over-provisioned computational clusters, my work investigates how to engineer distributed power management software in systems where per component power capping hardware is available. My work contributes a formalization for the goal of a power management solution, a generalized model for roughly estimating the performance effect of processor power capping on application runtime, and a fully dynamic power management strategy tested through simulation and experimentation on an existing HPC system.
