Researchers from the Arm-ECS Centre have been accepted to present their work at the Arm Research Summit 2018. Dr Geoff Merrett will be giving a talk titled “Run-time Power and Energy Management of Many-Core Systems” (abstract below).
Abstract: Energy-efficiency is important at all scales of computing system, from microcontrollers through to HPC. Established mechanisms like DPM and DVFS provide controls to affect power consumption, but careful management is required for effective use. In this talk, I provide an overview of the different run-time power management (RTM) approaches that we have developed, explored and practically validated through the EPSRC PRiME programme grant (www.prime-project.org), and discuss key findings and lessons learnt. I also refer to a range of open-source tools that we have released as a result of the project, from multi-core power modelling to a cross-platform framework for RTM.
