Executive Summary

As Chip Multiprocessors (CMPs) become the main trend in processor development, various power and thermal management strategies have recently been proposed to optimize system performance while controlling the power or temperature of a CMP chip to stay below a constraint. The availability of per-core DVFS (Dynamic Voltage and Frequency Scaling) also makes it possible to develop advanced management strategies. However, most existing solutions rely on open-loop search or optimization with the assumption that power can be estimated accurately, while others adopt oversimplified feedback control strategies to control power and temperature separately, without any theoretical guarantees.
