Dynamic Power Management for Webpage Loading on Mobile Devices
Park, Hyunjae; Choi, Youngjune;
As the performance of mobile devices has increased, high-end multicore CPUs have become the norm in smartphones. However, such high performance devices are exposed to the problem of battery depletion due to the energy consumption caused by software performance, and despite increases in battery capacity. The required resources are dynamic and varied, and further user interaction is highly random; thus, Linux-based power management such as DVFS is needed to fulfill requirements. In order to reduce power consumption, we propose a method to restrict the CPU frequency of data download while maintaining user reactivity. This can supplement the weakness of existing Linux-based power management techniques like DVFS in relation to webpage loading. Through the implementation of our method at the application level, we confirm that energy consumption from webpage loading is reduced.
