A consumption profile is a continuous function which links a workload with an electrical consumption :
consumption_profile(workload) = power_consumption
Consumption profile can be given by the user or be completed. The completion strategy of the consumption profile is specified for each device or component when implemented.
You will find the details of each of the consumption profiles in the respective components and device pages. Consumption profile are implemented for :
The consumption profiles are produced empirically from spot measurements at different workload levels on different architectures. We rely on the data described here:
Energizta project aims to build a collaborative database to refine the consumption profiles usable in the API.
