This talk aims to detail the recent developments in power measurement infrastructure in GNOME for hardware devices and software applications. Power panel in gnome-usage allows the users to see which hardware devices or applications are consuming system power. These statistics are extremely useful for both users and GNOME developers.
I hope that this would represent significant utility for GNOME developers to monitor system resource consumption efficiently and end-users as a tool to identify major power consumers.
