Abstract This paper discusses a method of online autotuning of power or energy consumption. A problem of online power modeling is the strong positive influence of the temperature on the power consumption. Without proper treatment of the temperature, an autotuning mechanism will misunderstand a variant measured at a low temperature to be power-efficient. This paper proposes a model of the relation between power and temperature, a Bayesian inference formula to estimate the power consumption with estimates of estimation errors, and an experimental design (i.e. algorithm of choosing variants) for online autotuning. The proposed methods are evaluated by simulation, and applied to online power and energy optimizations.
