            Bug ID: 1
           Summary: Green goal: power efficiency with all hardwares
           Product: DPDK
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: CONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Normal
         Component: other

  Target Milestone: 17.11

Internet infrastructures have a large environmental impact.
We need more and more machines, implying more manufacturing, more shipping,
more powering and more cooling.

With DPDK, every CPU cycle matters in order to achieve a high throughput.
It helps to reduce the number of required machines for maximum load.
Using machine capabilities at best is a case of power efficiency.

There in another case to consider regarding our energy footprint.
When the machines are not under heavy load, we can reduce powering and cooling.
This case requires power management to be well integrated with DPDK systems.

Last but not the least, the power efficiency must be considered for every
hardwares used in datacenters and telecom equipments.
