I have a Lenovo 11e (an elementary school computer) that I use as a Linux s=
erver. Works great and only draws 6 watts, or < $10/year in power consumpt=
ion.

The CPU is a very low-end quad-core.

I have some maintenance crons that run for about 90 minutes solid once a we=
ek. The machine is normally fanless (web requests won't normally make the =
fan run), except when these crons run the fan kicks in to medium speed. Th=
e load number as displayed in "top" is usually between 1.0 and 1.4 while th=
e cron is running.

The cron in general is tar'ing up lots of files and calculating sha512 chec=
ksums on around 50,000 files.

I've tried "nice" on these crons but it doesn't have much effect because th=
ey aren't competing with anything else. The machine is idle.

Is there any way to lower the priority of a process so that even when the C=
PUs are idle, it won't consume a full core?

If I wrote a C program (for example), I'd know how to do it -- just use sle=
ep() and microsleep(). But for an existing program written by others, I'm =
not sure if you can do this.

My goal is not have the fan run at all.

If that is indeed your goal, than by far the simplest and most complete sol=
ution is to under-clock the CPU(s), if that is supported by the hardware/BI=
OS.

Next best is to figure out how to have the OS under-clock the CPU(s), perha=
ps via boot-time arguments or sysctl (or /proc/*) settings. (You don't men=
tion OS, so no specific advice can be given.)

If neither of those options are available or, whoops, you actually *did* wa=
nt it to run the fan when non-cron-based process was heavy enough to requir=
e it, then perhaps a small wrapper program that implemented a duty-cycle on=
a child by sending SIGSTOP and SIGCONT would serve your purpose. If it us=
ed process groups it would even work for (most) shell scripts or other mult=
i-process operations.

That is an awesome question - one we really need to ask more often. It is =
such a small amount of energy you are looking at saving, we tend to ignore =
these issues. Now if we were designing a system for going to Mars where ev=
ery rise in temperature needs to be accounted for.

The 'nice' utility modifies the priority of process, not the overall schedu=
ling coverage.

A tweak of the scheduler and looking at the different classes of process, i=
.e. real-time, batch, would be helpful.

Maybe we need a new utility called 'green' for running batch style, conserv=
ed and controllable CPU cycle/minute processes. This would be helpful for =
admin'ing temperature sensitive, low-duty fanless embedded systems.

There you, repost question in a *nix embedded group, maybe one of the hardw=
are guys have come up with a utility.

Keep on pushing.

I’m not convinced this would actually save energy. Received wisdom
(e.g. from people who’ve done Linux integration for laptops, where power
consumption is critical) is that the lowest energy cost is achieved by
completing the desired action as rapidly as possible and returning to a
low-power state.

Off-the-cuff idea 1: You can run the task (ironically) in the real-time domain but then
use the appropriate sysctl parameters to throttle the real-time
domain scheduling to only have a small percentage of the CPU.

Shooting-from-the-hip idea 2: you can have a process which monitors the
job and stop/starts it by delivering the SIGSTP and SIGCONT signals in a
loop. Effectively, you inject random sleeps into the task externally.
SIGCONT it for a second then SIGSTP for nine: max ~ 10% usage.

I think you'll want to take a look at this page:

http://blog.scoutapp.com/articles/2014/11/04/restricting-process-cpu-usage-using-nice-cpulimit-and-cgroups

It would appear cpulimit will fit your needs.

A bit odd that that would show a high load: I'd expact that task to be
I/O bound, and waiting for disk read/write most of the time. But my
disks are slow ...

There's also ionice(1). Not sure it's of any use to you: you can say
"this process can only get disk access if noone else needs it".

But it still gets all the I/O of an otherwise idle system.

Time spent waiting for disk I/O is counted towards the load average.

Thanks! You're right, of course, and the Linux uptime(1) man page
confirms it.

Now I need to adjust how I interpret the xload(1) graph.

There is a saying in the US army: They also serve who stand and wait.

Did you mean to say, "On Linux, ...", or has that been true of Unix
utilities since time immemorial?

I don't understand the rationale. Is the idea that while a process is
waiting for the disk, the kernel is working in its stead? Or is it
just a bookkeeping simplification?

The load average is about "load", not "CPU". Summarizing such a complex
notion as a single number requires simplifications. Even just CPU, with SMP
and hyperthreading, can not be summarized as a single number.

"A process wants to do work, but is prevented from doing it."
Counting those processes seems to be a useful thing to do.

Although it's funny that you cannot use the loadavg to predict if
executing a second I/O-intensive process is a bad idea, or not.
And networking I/O load is, IIUC, not part of the loadavg at all.

The `saying' is from 1674, a little more than a century before the
establishment of the first forebears of the U.S. Army.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/When_I_Consider_How_My_Light_is_Spent
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Army#History

An alternative version, from (IIRC) "The Rime of the Ancient Surfer"
in MAD Magazine, runs "They also surf who only stand on waves."

AFAIK it at goes back at least to SunOS 4.

You’d have to ask whoever first designed it for the actual rationale...

My guess would be that the logic is that disk IO is as much a scarce
shared resource as CPU is, and heavy use of either leads to slow
completion of common tasks.
