A detailed blog article is yet to come, but for everyone who follows our blog only and not our repositories we wanted to highlight that we open sourced the new XGBoost variant of the SPECPower estimation model for cloud workloads on github. [...]
Last week we have been on the SDIA event for sustainble software and held a workshop on measuring the energy digital products.
We presented approchaes where you measure the energy either with tool like Scaphandre or the Green Metrics Tool as well as approaches for restricted environments like the cloud. [...]
Mozilla released a new version 104 this week which sports a power measurement feature.
This immediately sparked our interest and we wanted to give it some test run against a containerized browser in our Green Metrics Tool. [...]
In my last blog post I have written about how we finally completed the DC measurement reporter for our Green Metrics Tool.
In the last days we have looked at reducing the variance of the ATX powerlanes and finding out if swapping out the resistors for more stable current measurement resistors can improve the measurement. [...]
We finally got our DC measurement setup ready … sadly around one month later than expected.
If you wanna see first results go here:
Wordpress sample measurement Stress sample measurement If you wann get the details of our journey, why we are integrating it into our tool, some tech specs and the future outlook on when we have the AC measurement ready, then read on :) [...]
Starting this month we will be releasing articles in a regular fashion about insights into energy use of specifc software tools or architectures.
In order to lay a foundation to follow these articles we have created at a CO2 Formulas page, where you can find all the relevant formulas how to calculate the energy use of software. [...]
