Utilizing User Delays for DPM/DVS

In the previous sections, we showed how to determine when a user delay occurs and predict its length. Such resource usage predictions are exactly what are needed for DPM/DVS to be effective. Although DPM/DVS is an orthogonal problem to user delay modeling, we next show how user delays can be used to reduce system energy consumption through DPM/DVS.
