In this video you will learn how to use the Intel Power Gadget tool to collect power data. During this video you will see how to use different commands and why you would want to use one command versus the other. Lastly, you will be shown some of these logging commands and how to use the API to profile a particular segment of the demo application.
- [Voiceover] The first step to collect data…with the Intel Power Gadget,…is to set up your Windows environment.…Close any applications that you don't need.…Next, put your device into airplane mode,…since the Jigsaw Puzzle does not need the internet.…Keep in mind, if you disconnect…your computer from the internet,…you may be unable to follow along with this video,…unless you downloaded it to your mobile device.…It is okay to keep your internet connected,…but keep in mind that what you see in your log file…will be different from what you see in my file.…By putting the system into airplane mode,…background services that would otherwise…be consuming power are disabled.…
By performing these two actions,…you can be confident that the power data you will see…in the log file is related to your application under test,…and not skewed because of another program that was running…or a Windows update that was being performed…during the collection.…It is always a best practice…to disconnect from the internet when power profiling…
With these diagnostic tools and some efficient programming, you can reduce your app's power consumption while improving its response times. In this course, Thomas Pantels introduces a handful of tools used to measure and optimize power consumption. You will see demos on how to use the Intel Power Gadget, Windows Performance Toolkit, TypePerf, and SoC Watch, along with some simple coding tips for making any Windows app more energy efficient.
