  • Abstract:

    The concept of energy-aware scheduling offers new opportunities to react on energy consumption rather by the operating system than by appropriate hardware. Particularly systems can benefit from this concept, where typical hardware mechanisms like frequency scaling are not available or in environments where such mechanisms may not be applied. This work analyzes requirements for the adoption of this concept to a virtual machine environment. We presume that the virtual machines are cooperating by applying energy budgets assigned by a superior energy-aware instance.
