Visualize

The package also comes with a Dash App containing illustrations to understand the emissions logged from various experiments across projects. The App currently consumes logged information from a CSV file, generated from an in-built logger in the package.

The App can be run by executing the below CLI command that needs following arguments:

  • filepath - path to the CSV file containing logged information across experiments and projects

  • port - an optional port number, in case default [8050] is used by an existing process

carbonboard --filepath="examples/emissions.csv" --port=3333

Summary and Equivalents

Users can get an understanding into net power consumption and emissions generated across projects and can dive into a particular project. The App also provides exemplary equivalents from daily life, for example:

  • Weekly Share of an average American household

  • Number of miles driven

  • Time of 32-inch LCD TV watched

Summary

Regional Comparisons

The App also provides a comparative visual to benchmark emissions and energy mix of the electricity from the grid across different countries.

Global Equivalents

Cloud Regions

The App also benchmarks equivalent emissions across different regions of the cloud provider being used and recommends the most eco-friendly region to host infrastructure for the concerned cloud provider.
