The LSFProxy does not print a 'total' count as 'badmin perfmon view' does leading to misreading of the number of total events since restarting

In 'badmin perfmon view', we always are able to see the total events for a specific output class. This is not possible in 'badmin lsfproxyd status' output. Please add that output. Specifically, we can see average/min/max rejections from proxyd, an...

Add bkill option that will set the job status to DONE rather than EXIT

Add lsb.params setting to limit the number of times a job can be redispatched upon either a pre-exec failure of job initilization failure

We currently have jobs that will bounce from host to host either based upon a pre-exec failure, or a job initialization failure. This can impact > 500 hosts and cause an increase in MBD memory use. It would be nice to have a setting such as: MA...

Allow 'ssacct' to work without specifying a file path when the session is still running

Currently Session Scheduler's 'ssacct' command works without the -f option only when the Session is finished. LSF knows where the account file is when the job is running, so why can we not see the account output when the session is running?

Set a limit in the MC receive queue

TSMC is using MC to balance work load between clusters. When the submission cluster is busy, it forwards some jobs to execution clusters. The execution cluster has it's own workload except the forwarded jobs. To avoid the forwarded jobs occupy mos...
