I am not sure that I'm on the right place to post my question, so please tell me where I can ask if here is not the right place.
My question is not directly related to PAL but it concerns the performance of computers.
We do some capacity analysis of computers so we affect a power to a server depending on the numbers of processor and the frequency of this one. With the percentage of use of the processor we can determine what power is used by a computer and compare
it to another.
It seems to be a good idea, but I discover that some computers have a "saving energy" mode which implies that the frequency of the processor can change.
If a computer (A) have a frequency of 100% of the maximum frequency and use 50 % processor time
If a computer (B) have a frequency of 50% of the maximum frequency and use 50 % processor time
If computer (A) and computer (B) have the same power is that it means that the computer (B) uses half the power that computer (A)?
Thank you for your help
