Abstract
Controlling power consumption and temperature is of major concern for modern computing systems. In this work we characterize thermal behavior and power consumption of an IBM POWER6-based system. We perform the characterization at several levels: application, operating system, and hardware level, both when the system is idle, and under load. At hardware level, we report a 25% reduction in total system power consumption by using the processor low power mode. We also study the effect of the hardwar...
