Computer Architecture Homework 1 Due: Friday, September 11, 2009 All problems are in the text. 1. Problem 1.5, page 57, parts (a) and (c) part (a): (14 KW) / (79W + 2.3 W + 7.0 W) = (14KW /88.3 W) = 158 servers part (c): Failure rate = [1/ (9 * 10 6 )] + [ 8 * (1/4500)] + [1 / (3 * 10 4 )] = [1 + 8 * 2000 + 300 ] / [9 * 10 6 ] = [16301] / [9 * 10 6 ] MTTF = 1/(Failure rate) = [9 * 10 6 ] / [13601] = 522 hours 2. Problem 1.7, page 58 part (a): 50% part (b): Power New (V * 0.5) 2 * (F * 0.5) = = 0.5 3 = 0.125 Power Old V 2 * F 3. Problem 1.9, page 60 part (a): FIT = 10 9 / MTTF and FIT = 100, so MTTF = 10 9 / FIT = 10 9 / 100 = 10,000,000 part (b): Availability = MTTF / [MTTF + MTTR] = 107 / (107 + 24) 100%
