Software Validation using Power Profiles

: software validation, software tracing, power consumption


. The validation of modern software systems incorporates both functional and quality requirements. This paper proposes a validation approach for software quality requirement—its power consumption. This approach validates whether the software produces the desired results with a minimum expenditure of energy. We present energy requirements and an approach for their validation using a power consumption model, test-case specification, software traces, and power measurements. Three different approaches for power data gathering are described. The power consumption of mobile phone applications is obtained and matched against the power consumption model.
