Data Center performance monitoring
Google uses the Power Usage Effectiveness metric to monitor the performance of its data centers. When it assess variability in its efficiency, Google takes action to remedy the defect. …

… “As we review our real-time efficiency performance we might, for example, notice that one of our data centers is not performing consistently with others of similar size and locale. So we’ll take a closer look at optimizing that facility. Are we using fans to cool spaces that don’t need to be cooled? Is the thermostat at the right set-point? Can we reduce the time the chillers need to run while keeping the machines operational? ” …
