As part of our corporate energy efficiency program, I want to
reduce the energy consumption of our 1850 and 1950 servers.
The machines are compute servers running large mathematical models.
They are either flat out for days at a time, or idle.
Is anyone using Demand-Based Switching, as discussed in
Will it work? Is it a "Good Thing"? Are there any other references?
I am also considering just powering them down if they are idle out of hours
and automatically powering them up at 0800 on workdays.
