An Effective Feedback-Driven Approach for Energy Saving in Battery Powered Systems

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Energy efficiency is essential to Battery-Powered (BP) mobile systems. However, existing energy efficiency techniques suffer from imbalance between system performance and power consumption. This paper presents a Feedback QoS based Model, called FQM, to successfully achieve power reduction without performance degradation. By observing system behavior via control variables, FQM applies pre-estimated policies to monitor and schedule I/O activities. The authors implement a prototype of FQM under Linux kernel and evaluate its effectiveness with different applications in terms of power consumption, QoS, and performance. The experimental results show that FQM can effectively save energy while maintaining high QoS stability.
