The paper presents state of the art of energy-aware high-performance computing (HPC), in particular identification and classification of approaches by system and device types, optimization metrics, and energy/power control methods. System types include single device, clusters, grids, and clouds while considered device types include CPUs, GPUs, multiprocessor, and hybrid systems. Optimization goals include various combinations of metrics such as execution time, energy consumption, and
more » ... with consideration of imposed power limits. Control methods include scheduling, DVFS/DFS/DCT, power capping with programmatic APIs such as Intel RAPL, NVIDIA NVML, as well as application optimizations, and hybrid methods. We discuss tools and APIs for energy/power management as well as tools and environments for prediction and/or simulation of energy/power consumption in modern HPC systems. Finally, programming examples, i.e., applications and benchmarks used in particular works are discussed. Based on our review, we identified a set of open areas and important up-to-date problems concerning methods and tools for modern HPC systems allowing energy-aware processing.
