Google-folks: does anyone have references for somewhere I could learn about measuring the energy efficiency or power consumption of apps (or even smaller chunks of code) running on Android?
no plus ones
- I know there are apps that can measure on an app level on the market. Not sure about code. You could maybe look at memory consumption?Dec 7, 2011
- I could do... but I'm interested in energy usage ;)
I've seen apps like Power Tutor (which is the closest to what I'm after), and I'm interested in seeing what tools are out there for this kinda thing. It's a really interesting and important area and it seems there's not much going on there (looking at it, as I am, from the software side - I'm sure there's a lot of interesting hardware-related stuff out there).Dec 7, 2011
- Did you have any joy with this? I worked on a battery related bug and it was only through looking at the code that I could identify the problem.Dec 10, 2011
- No, never heard any more about it. It's an area I'm interested in, so I might have a dig through the Android source or look a bit further afield...Dec 10, 2011
