In this paper, we present a power/energy profiling framework for collecting and analyzing energy consumption data in compute clouds. We implement a prototype of our profiling framework and test it in a cloud computing environment. By measuring the power/ energy consumption with various combinations of system configuration and settings, we build knowledge of the extent to which each factor influences the system power dynamics. As a future work, we plan to explore the collected profiling data and design resource management mechanisms that consider both the performance requirements of applications and energy budget of a cloud system for green computing.
