Expand API (or bjobs -o option) to report memory reservation on a per-job basis

Determining per-job memory usage is valuable, but we also need to be able to see, on a per-job basis, how much memory job(s) have reserved at a point in time. Partly we need to be able to compare to the actual memory use to see if they're over-res...

Add possibility to assign cores from the same CCX in AMD CPUs to make use of the same L3 cache.

With a specific 2-core workload we noticed significant performance improvements of about 50% in shorter runtime when both cores reside on the same L3 cache group (CCX) of an AMD EPYC CPU.Therefore it would be very beneficial to be able to have LSF...

Telemetry for LSF scheduler performance

LSF struggles in large farms with many running pending jobs and thousands of users in fairshare tree. LSF's struggle with heavy query activity is well documented. It would be great if LSF can provide telemetry on its own performance and what speci...

Currently, we can find thousands of entries for all users even though they have ZERO STARTED jobs as listed in bqueues -lr output. For some of larger farms, these entries are close to 7M records and bqueues -lr takes long time to return the data. ...

allow to limit cpu usage to the number of slots requested

Hello,, currently, when a user submit a job, there's no way in LSF to limit the cpu consumption. recently, we discover that it's possible to limit cpu usage OS side using cgroup, by putting a value in the 'cpu.cfs_quota_us' file of the '/sys/fs/...
