Good point <grin>.
Horsepower is a measure of power, of energy over time, such as the
rate of providing or using electrical or mechanical energy.
So, with your suggestion of 'horsepower', are you saying that cpu_power
is a metric of such electrical or mechanical energy -- the peak or
average watts of the electricity consumed by the CPUs in a group?
And is white_power, the energy output of a redneck on a step machine?
Power has assorted meanings over and above the J/s one.
I'd suggest 'computing_power' might be less ambiguous.
