It’s just yulistic!


Environment Future general purpose multicore system. Contribution It suggests a new approach that efficiently finds a near-global optimum configuration of finer-grained power gating (unit of lane, explained below) without requiring offline training, microarchitecture state, or foreknowledge of the workload. Due to its purely online black-box approach, the Flicker control algorithm (global optimization algorithm) adapts on-the-fly to different machine microarchitectures and to machines that run a wide variety of applications.
