Measure the energy Consumption of VM, server, Desktop and laptop with Joulemeter
Have you ever wanted to know how much power/electricity does your computer and laptop consume? Microsoft released the tiny application called Joulemeter (780 KB) which measure the energy usage of virtual machines (VMs), servers, desktops, laptops, and even individual softwares running on a computer.
Still in alpha Joulemeter estimates the energy usage by measuring the hardware resources (CPU, disk, memory, screen etc) being used and converting the resource usage to actual power usage based on automatically learned realistic power models.
Joulemeter can be used for gaining visibility into energy use and for making several power management and provisioning decisions in data centers, client computing, and software design.
