We have developed a framework to promote the reliability of capture, analysis, and interpretation of software energy consumption data, known as FEETINGS (Framework for Energy Efficiency Testing to Improve Environmental Goals of the Software).
FEETINGS aims to provide:
Solution to the lack of a unique and agreed terminology
Process that helps researchers to evaluate the energy efficiency of the software, allowing greater control over the measurements made, ensuring their reliability and consistency
Technological environment that supports the process and allows for realistic measurements of the energy consumed by the software and its subsequent analysis.
