2016 : Server Workload Model Identification: Monitoring and Control Tools for Linux

Prof.Ir. Supeno Djanali M.Sc Ph.D


EN Server power control in data centers is a coordinated process carefully designed to reach multiple data center management objectives. The main objectives include avoiding power capacity overloads and system overheating, as well as fulfilling service-level agreements (SLAs). In addition to the primary goals, server control process aims to maximize various energy efficiency metrics subject to reliability constraints. Monitoring of data center performance is fundamental for its efficient management. In order to keep track of how well the computing tasks are processed, cluster control systems need to collect accurate measurements of activities of cluster components. This paper presents a brief overview of performance and power consumption monitoring tools available in the Linux systems.
