In this paper, an alternative metric addressing these drawbacks is introduced. The metric makes use of pre-characterized load dependent component models and estimates efficiency for arbitrary input data. The results are objectively comparable between different data center configurations as well as between data center sites, and reasons for inefficiencies may be identified by extracting intermediate results.} @COMMENTBibtex file generated on
