In HPC, power-related concern becomes dominant aspects of hardware and software design. Significant research effort has been devoted towards the energy optimization of parallel loop. This article is focused on energy-oriented OpenMP static and dynamic parallel loop scheduling problem. Only DVS cannot obtain the maximum energy savings. It is necessary to combine parallel loop rescheduling and DVS. First, we propose an energy-saving static scheduling (ESSS) algorithm, which exploits the scheduling slack to save energy by DVS. Second, we propose an energy-saving optimal static scheduling (EOSS) algorithm, which obtains the maximum energy saving through combining loop rescheduling and DVS. Last, in order to reduce the energy of OpenMP dynamic scheduling, we shut down the processor when it is idle, which is called shut-down based dynamic scheduling (SBDS) algorithm. Finally, we demonstrate the effectiveness by experiments.
