helloI would like to set up server with less power consumption possible. (just turn off server is not acceptable)Server is based on pc in past (cpu is phenom 9850 2.5Ghz 4 c... [by ykorotia]
I am running Ubuntu Server 12.04 on an HP Mini 311. It has an Atom 270, 3GB ram, NVIDIA ION graphics. When running windows 7 with the screen off and no programs running the power consumtion from the wall was measured as 7-9W. With Ubuntu server running, with ACPI, powertop options good. the power consumption is 17-20W.
Phoronix: Linux 3.13 Kernel Power Consumption Benchmarks
With word recently of a 50 Watt Linux kernel power regression that's still being investigated, I carried out some more power consumption tests of a Core i7 4770K Haswell system to see if its power usage has been impacted by recent kernel upgrades...
I am a completely new user to Linux/Ubuntu! I looked through tips on battery issues and powertop but failed to find clear tips on how to tweak powertop except for Toggle Tunable.
Could someone look through the log and advise me on what should be done to reduce power consumption? My laptop is 1 year old!
Just curious if anybody else experienced some issues with increased power consumption with the updated kernel 3.9.5 from Slackware current ?
After a clean boot power consumption/internal temperature are in the same levels like with 3.8.x kernel. However after a suspend/resume cycle, powertop shows consumption gets almost doubled (from 8W to 15W).
A newly unveiled startup says it has devised a CMOS platform that can cut the active power consumption of & a wide range of integrated circuit products& by half, and leakage power consumption by up to five times. SuVolta says its & PowerShrink& platform has already been licensed by Fujitsu, which will offer it in 65nm products in 2012....
I 've been wondering for a long time wheather there is a way how to show the current power consumption when computer are pluged into AC
When on battery, gnome-power-statistics shows how much the system consumes power in Watt but when on adapter and the battery is charged it don't show it. How can I find out my system cosumption in this case?
I am finding that on my system.. ubuntu 13.10 is consuming much more power than Windows 8... (I get about 3.5 hours of battery on Windows and 1 hour on ubuntu)
From googling, this might be as a result of a combination of factors (biggest of which, is nVidia Optimus).. I would like to try out different methods and see how my power consumption and system temperature is affected.
