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?
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...
The root sbatchd crashes frequently in our cluster (and without anything useful in the log), but systemctl is not configured to restart the daemon. Please see the details in the related support case, but essentially we need to make it so this daem...
Add a new option to 'bkill' to kill only pending jobs
The current bulk kill option does not provide enough granularity to kill pending jobs without a finish event, and kill running jobs with a finish event. This option will allow us to speed up the process of cluster maintenance where running jobs, w...
Set the "+pref_level" for hosts or host_groups in lsb.hosts
Currently it's possible in lsb.queues to set the "+pref_level" for hosts or host_groups in the "HOSTS" section to prioritize some hosts for job submission. We have various host groups defined in lsb.hosts and would like to set the +pref_level for ...
Add bkill option that will set the job status to DONE rather than EXIT
Currently all jobs terminated via bkill are set to status EXIT. With the growing usage of bioinformatics tools and applications that were traditionally run on dedicated servers being integrated into use on HPC resources there is a shifting paradig...
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...
