2014-08-26 19:00..19:45 in Room 327

In this talk we will do a reality-check in terms of the power consumption on off-the-shelve systems running “out of the box” Linux distributions. The goal is to prove how out-of the-box Linux distros on the latest commercial hardware is not optimal. We will demonstrate the steps needed to achieve optimal system power using various tools and analysis techniques including PowerTOP & Turbostat. Upon completion of the talk, the audience should understand the steps needed to properly configure an out of the box Linux distro to take advantage of the power features available on the latest Intel platforms.
