Total Power Usage Effectiveness: A New Take on PUE

SESSION: Total Power Usage Effectiveness: A New Take on PUE

EVENT TYPE: Birds of a Feather

TIME: 12:15PM - 1:15PM

SESSION LEADER(S):Michael Patterson, Chung-Hsing Hsu, Anna Maria Bailey


The Energy Efficient HPC Working Group proposes two new metrics: ITUE (IT-power usage effectiveness), similar to PUE but inside the system and TUE (total-power usage effectiveness), which combine for a total efficiency picture. TUE provides a ratio of total energy, (internal and external support energy uses) and the specific energy used in the HPC. ORNL has alpha tested these new metrics and LLNL, NCAR, LBNL, NREL, VTech and LRZ have all expressed interest in beta testing. This BoF will provide a forum for reviewing the beta test results and also provide for further community feedback on the new metrics.
