SAN19-421 Training: Device power management for idle

Feedback form is now closed.
ARM platforms often supports sophisticated power management, to for example allow unused parts on a running system, to be put into low power states, which prevents energy from being drained.

However, it can be a rather complicated task to deploy optimized power management support in a driver in the Linux kernel, especially when it comes to idle management. A couple of frameworks are there to help and these comes with corresponding callback functions, that may be assigned on per device basis. The driver developer needs detailed knowledge about these frameworks, especially when the goal is to reach the best possible energy efficient behavior.

In this session, we look into the concepts for system wide suspend and the corresponding low power states, such as suspend to ram, suspend to idle and suspend to disk.

Additionally, for more fine grained power management per device, some best practices are explained of how to deploy support for runtime PM and PM domains (in particular the generic PM domain) .
