Abstract [en]

Architectural choices for High-Performance Computingsystems have once again become interesting with energyefficiency for targeted workloads now being a major decisionfactor. A detailed understanding of the energy consumptionof major system components during code execution is criticalfor evolving architectures towards enhanced energy efficiency.The focus of this paper is on the measurement system hard- and software we designed and implemented for the assessmentof the energy-to-solution of HPC workloads for the Texas Instruments TMS320C6678 (6678) Digital Signal Processor. The 6678’s thermal design power falls between x86 serverprocessors and mobile CPUs and so does its floating-pointand memory system capabilities. Yet, compared to those types of processors in corresponding CMOS technology, it offers a potentially significant energy advantage. The measurement system is described together with a thorough error analysis. Measurements are processed out-of-band minimizing the impact on the measured system. Sample observations of the energy efficiency of the 6678 and its memory system are included for illustration.
