AbstractThe Argo project is a DOE initiative for designing a modular operating system/runtime for the next generation of supercomputers. A key focus area in this project is power management, which is one of the main challenges on the path to exascale. In this paper, we discuss ideas for systemwide power management in the Argo project. We present a hierarchical and scalable approach to maintain a power bound at scale, and we highlight some early results.
