Energy consumption is a growing concern for data centers. Advances in server equipmenttechnologies and increased demand for computing power have increased load densities in thecomputer room, which in turn has caused corresponding increases in data center powerconsumption. Energy efficiency measures are thus of high importance for data center designers,operators, and owners. This paper outlines a software-based approach to the data gathering,trending, and analysis that are necessary to apply successful energy efficiency measures in datacenter environments.
