Power Efficient Idle Injection - Jacob Pan, Intel

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

While optimizing for performance are common, many use cases demand just the the opposite: injection of idle cycles. The motivations for doing so range from power capping, thermal management, pay-per-use, and real-time throttling. Idle injection mechanisms are also diversified and provide uneven results in terms power efficiency, performance and user experience impact.

This talk focuses on the power awareness aspect of idle injection, helping audience to connect the kernel mechanism with the underlining hardware. Bridge the understanding of idle cycles vs idle states, scheduling workload vs. hardware coordination, and power saving vs. CPU topology.
