System deployment

SystemDeployment

  • Powernet:a hybrid sensor network that monitors the power and utilization of the IT systems in a large academic building

  • Over more than two years

  • 250+individual computing devices

  • Onepowermeterperdevice

Power share by type

Power Share by Type

  • 4 types: PC, LCD, server, switch


Measuring and analyzing the energy use of enterprise computing systems

PC

  • Binned into 3 categories

    • Laptops

    • Low-end

    • High-end

  • 742 in total

    • 456: description available. The other: assume same distribution.

LCD


Measuring and analyzing the energy use of enterprise computing systems

LCD

  • Lower brightness & use dark backgrounds


Server

Server

  • Monitors 32 of the 500 servers

  • Calculated average power: 233 W

  • Estimated total power of 500 servers: 117 kW

Network switch utilization

NetworkSwitchUtilization

  • The demand never exceeded 200 Mbps


Network switch utilization1

NetworkSwitchUtilization

  • Highly underutilized

  • Total network demand <1000 Mbps 100% of the time.
