Abstract

In this paper we propose a simulation framework that allows for the analysis of power and performance trade-offs for data centres that save energy via power management. The models are cooperating discrete-event and agent-based models, which enable a variety of data centre configurations, including various infrastructural choices, workload models, (heterogeneous) servers and power management strategies. The capabilities of our modelling and simulation approach is shown with an example of a 200-server cluster. A validation that compares our results, for a restricted model with a previously published numerical model is also provided.
