I had the opportunity to play with a Blade Center Chassis with 16 Blades, each of them a Dual-E5 2690v4, so 56 threads (28 cores) times 16.
$ mkdir mprime; \ ] cd mprime; \ ] wget http://www.mersenne.org/ftp_root/gimps/p95v2810.linux64.tar.gz; \ ] tar xvzf p95v2810.linux64.tar.gz; \ ] ./mprime -m
running with “stress test only”, “mode 1 – small FFT” and 56 cores gets me quite a bit of power consumption.
Idle Blades is being reported as 140W, busy blades are 400W.
Images below the fold.
6400W reported by the blades, 6820W reported by the chassis, 2x 3.75kW reported by the PDU (plus a Solidfire Unit and a ToR-Switch).
7000W are 9.4HP, so a 1949 2CV Type A.
