Abstract
Energy consumption is by far the most important contributor to HPC cluster operational costs, and it accounts for a significant share of the total cost of ownership. Advanced energy-saving techniques in HPC components have received significant research and development effort, but a simple measure that can dramatically reduce energy consumption is often overlooked. We show that, in capacity computing, where many small to medium-sized jobs have to be solved at the lowest cost, a practical energy-saving approach is to scale-in the application on large-memory nodes. We evaluate scaling-in; i.e. decreasing the number of application processes and compute nodes (server...
