How an Experimental Grid is Used:
the Grid5000 Case and its Impact
on Energy Usage

Short Presentation

The question of energy savings is a matter of concern since a long time in the mobile distributed systems. However, for the large-scale non-mobile distributed systems, which nowadays reach impressive sizes, the energy dimension just starts to be taken into account.

Some previous work on operational Grids shows that grids are not utilized at their full capacity. We focus on the utilization and the energy analysis of experimental Grids by relying on the case study of Grid5000, a french experimental Grid.
