BitWatts is an extension of PowerAPI for building software-defined power meters inside virtualized environments. To have more details on what is a software-defined power meter, please consult: http://powerapi.org.
The research leading to these results has received funding from the European Community’s Seventh Framework Programme [FP7/2007- 2013] under the ParaDIME Project, grant agreement no. 318693.
This project is fully managed with sbt.
