GPU Guaranteed Resource Reservation

Currently Guaranteed Resource Pools in LSF can fulfill SLAs based on slots, memory, licenses, or packages (slots + memory). With more demand for GPU resources in a cluster, it would be beneficial to add GPU resources to a Guaranteed Resource Pool....

Set a limit for service class

It would be useful to set a limit in lsb.resources for Serive Class "SLA" in order give some minimum guarantee with SLA and set a maximium number of resorucese usable in this SLA.It would be excellent to indicate the limit with the number of nodes...

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...

Enhance GSLA to enable in-queue preemption

The Guaranteed SLA system allows sharing of Resources defined by ServiceClasses. We would like to use that to allow two or more groups to pool and share compute slots, wherein they typically unused slots would be available to all of the groups. Th...

Allow resource limit ELIGIBLE_PEND_JOBS usage for APPS

I would like to have a limit ELIGIBLE_PEND_JOBS for the consumer APPS. The reason is an application which needs licenses from a license server. In case of many simultanously dispatched jobs the license server overloads. Up to now the resource limi...

tool to list out active and default base params - lsparams

Think of 'bparams' and the level of details that it provides with args '-la'. This helps in figuring out what all params are configured as default or what defaults values are affecting the scheduling. Such a tool does not exist for LSF Base config...

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...
