BMWG Meeting

Benchmarking Power usage of networking devices

Vishwas Manral, IP Infusion Inc.

IETF 79, Bejing, China


Current state

Current state

  • Need to improve energy efficiency (EE) of networks

  • Start with measuring EE of devices

  • Maximum Rated Power gives maximum power that can be used (innacurate)

  • Power instrumentation of a device in a live network hard to do


New metrics

New metrics

  • Similar methodology to TEEER (Verizon defined) but more comprehensive

  • Network Energy Consumption Rate (NECR) absolute rate

  • Network Energy Proportionality Index (NEPI) to compare between devices


Bmwg meeting

NECR

To optimize the run time energy usage for different devices, the additional energy consumption that will result as a factor of additional traffic needs to be known. The NECR defines the power usage increase in MilliWatts per Mbps of data at the physical layer


Bmwg meeting

NEPI

In the ideal case the power consumed by a device is proportional to its network load. The average difference between the ideal (I) and the measured (M) power consumption defines the EPI.

EPIx = (Mx - Ix)/ Mx * 100 EPI = (EPI1 + EPI2 + ....... EPIn) / n

The EPI is independent of the actual traffic load. It can thus be used to define the energy efficiency of a networking device. A value of 0 means the power usage is agnostic to traffic and a value of 100 means that the device has perfect energy proportionality.
