software design
Software Design
  • Delivering 4 binaries:
  • EMF – Energy Measurement Facilitator
    • Does not drive the benchmark.
    • Be independent of benchmark.
    • How to pick-up benchmark events.
    • Time sync with benchmark driver – Mark this time from the benchmark driver.
    • Register an event. Mark this time with “string”
    • Single instance
    • Create separate thread for display?
  • PTD Manager
    • Need to define command set to PTD
    • Connect to PTD – one per PTD
    • Read current measurement (poll)
    • Call back… for display (send measurements at a defined period)
    • Local logging –store in binary format for small file size.
    • Time Sync
  • PTD
    • SPEC version will likely require some modifications
    • Utilities
  • Report Generator
    • Standardize output
    • Use in FDR
    • Uploaded zip file
benchmark status report
Benchmark Status Report

The TPC Energy sub-committee has developed methodology to add energy metrics to all the existing TPC Benchmarks. This will utilize the existing TPC benchmarks as the workload and during the running of the benchmarks, measure the energy being consumed by the System Under Test. The new metrics will be of the form: Watts/Performance.

The TPC-Energy Specification wording is approximately 60% complete. There remains significant work in developing procedures and measurement methodologies which require testing prior to finalization of the specification.

The TPC-Energy subcommittee is developing code which will interface to the power analyzers and temperature probes.. This code will collect the energy and temperature data of the components of the System Under Test and create a uniform log for reporting the results. The TPC will use the SPEC consortium Power and Temperature Daemon code as part of this benchmark. These programs will be available to Test Sponsors who will run the TPC-Energy option of the TPC Benchmarks.
