Intel Power Gadget 3.6 doesn't measure the RAM power

Dear Team,

 

I am using Intel Power Gadget for my research project to measure  the energy consumption of sw code for different algorithms. I saw in the documentation of this tool, that the older release, Intel Power Gadget 3.5, was already showing and measuring the power of DRAM but sadly there is not such option in the new release 3.6 for windows.

I installed Intel Power Gadget 3.5 but the tool is not starting at all.

 

could you please support me here?

 

Thank you

Dear Community,

 

any update please regarding the above post ? I need to work with the measurement results and I am sadly still missing the results of the power consumption of the memory.

 

Thank you

If you are using a server CPU, you might want to give pcm-power a try, which is part of the PCM package: https://github.com/intel/pcm 
Apart from other metrics, pcm-power reports DRAM power as well. Setting pcm up on Windows is a little bit tricky though because a special driver is needed.
