Abstract: This poster highlights an ongoing community-wide effort among vendors, labs, and academia, to incorporate power-awareness within system-stacks in upcoming exascale machines. HPC PowerStack is the first-and-only community-driven vendor-neutral effort to identify what power optimization software actors are key within the modern-day stack; discuss their interoperability, and work toward gluing together existing open source projects to engineer cost-effective, but cohesive, portable implementations.

This poster disseminates key insights acquired in the project, provides prototyping status updates, highlights open questions, and solicits participation addressing the imminent exascale power challenge.
