Characterizing a Source Code Model with Energy Measurements

Abstract : Energy consumption is a critical point when developing applications. Either for battery-saving purposes, for lowering the cost of data-centers, or simply for the sake of having an eco-friendly program, reducing the energy needed to run a software becomes mandatory. Model-Driven Engineering has shown great results when it comes to program understanding and refactoring. Modeling the source code along with its energy consumption could be a powerful asset to programmers in order to develop greener code. For that purpose, this paper presents an approach for modeling energy consumption inside a source code model. Energy metrics are gathered at runtime, modeled using the standard Structured Metrics Meta-model, and associated to the source code model, enabling model-driven techniques for energy analysis and optimizations.
