It works! Thank you so much. One last question, under devices there’s only CPU. Does that mean PowerAPI does not take into account power consumption due to network?

You are right, we do not propose such module at this time, @rouvoy already has the opportunity to answer this question ;)

Do not hesitate if you have any question.

Our experience till date on measuring the power consumption of network for servers has shown that the power consumption of the network interface was dominated by the power consumption of CPU spent on networking tasks. Regarding the WiFi, we have no module available yet, but beyond the aforementioned issue, the power consumption of the wireless interface will highly depend on the quality of the signal strength.
