Simulating Job Replication Versus its Energy Usage



Brian D. Cloteaux, Vladimir Marbukh


Due to the proliferation of computers in all aspects of our lives, the energy and ecological impacts of computing are becoming increasing important. Some of the transformative algorithms of recent years generate huge amounts of carbon dioxide, potentially damaging the environment. We have developed a set of simulations for understanding the trade-offs between distributed computing and its carbon impact. We briefly describe our current work and our future research aiming at finding practical algorithmic solutions.
