Practical Resource Management in Power-Constrained, High Performance Computing

Tapasya Patki, David K. Lowenthal, Anjana Sasidharan, Matthias Maiterth, Barry L. Rountree, Martin Schulz, Bronis R. de Supinski
2015 Proceedings of the 24th International Symposium on High-Performance Parallel and Distributed Computing - HPDC '15  
Within RMAP, we design and analyze an adaptive policy, which derives job-level power bounds in a fair-share manner and supports overprovisioning and power-aware backfilling.  ...  The goals for RMAP are to improve application performance as well as system power utilization, and thus minimize the average turnaround time for all jobs.  ...  While procuring this amount of power poses a problem, utilizing it efficiently is an even bigger challenge.  ...
