Grading the efficiency of computing assets is however, a difficult, subjective and time consuming manual task. Thus, an automatic efficiency grading algorithm is highly desirable. In this paper, we compare the effectiveness of the different criteria used in the manual grading task for automatically determining the efficiency grading of a computing asset. We report results on a dataset of 1,200 assets from two different data centers in IBM Toronto. Our preliminary results show that electrical costs (associated with power and cooling) appear to be even more informative than hardware and age based criteria as a means of determining the efficiency grade of an asset. Our analysis also indicates that the effectiveness of the various efficiency criteria is dependent on the asset demographic of the data centre under consideration.||Funding Details:||Science Foundation Ireland||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Publisher:||Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE)||Copyright (published version):||2013 IEEE||Keywords:||Asset utilization cost;Asset efficiency grading||DOI:||10.1109/CLOUD.2013.136||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Conference Details:||IEEE 6th International Conference on Cloud Computing, Santa Clara Marriott, CA, USA, 28 June - 3 July, 2013|
