Abstract

This paper is motivated by a simple question: what are the energy consumption characteristics of mobile storage alternatives? To answer this question, we are faced with a design space of multiple dimensions. Two important dimensions are the type of storage technologies and the type of file systems. In this paper, we explore some options along each of these two dimensions. We have constructed a logical-disk system, which can be configured to run on different storage technologies and to emulate the behavior of different file systems. As we explore these configuration options, we find that the energy behavior is determined by a complex interaction of three factors: the power management mechanism of the storage device, the distribution of idleness in the workload, and the file system strategies that attempt to exploit and bridge these first two factors.
