Support Multi-threaded LIM with a Shared Memory Database for Scalability
It would be nice if LSF's LIM used a shared memory database and could accept multiple threads instead of having to constantly fork itself to return client data. The new setting to increase/decrease the LIM connection backlog was informative, but i...
Dump configs to standardized format for cluster comparisons
We have multiple stand-alone clusters, and frequently have issues with something working differently in one as opposed to another. The solution from our side is to use something like ansible/chef/cfEngine to build the clusters, but for our existin...
Add Regular Expressions for Project Limits and SLA Auto-Attach and Permissions
We utilize hierarchical projects and at times we would like to allow certain projects and certain functions, both that are a part of the hierarchy to utilize an SLA, for example, assume that the project has three levels project_code:finance_code:f...
Allow bjobs command to show the pre and post exec exitStatus/exitCode information
Right now, we require bhist to get any detail on pre/post exec error codes, it would be nice if we could get this from the job record via bjobs vs. bhist. bhist in very large environments is a non-starter for obtaining this status information.
Allow Users to specify a ClearCase 'cleartool' command but require that it be white listed first
Allow the users to override the CLEARTOOL binary path, but only if it's included in a white list configuration file in the $LSF_ENVDIR location. I would suggest something like:
Set more job variables in parent SBATCHD prior to forking the job SBATCHD/RES
I've been working with the Daemons Wrap source code trying to make the logging more presentable, and I've come accross a hurdle to effectively enhancing that integration. I need both the Job Start and Submit Times, and normally, I would just be ab...
Track a local directory duing job execution and report utilization details in job rusage
We would like to be able to, at submission time, specify a local directory that we would like to have LSF monitor the total size and files in and report in the Jobs RUSAGE periodically. This directory will be separate from the execCwd or the cwd. ...
Add the following commands to the Query log, also add the total execution time to the query log output
Right now, many commands are logged to the query log, but a certain number of commands are not. Additionally, we would like to know the transaction time to process each command added to the log entry. The commands that are missing are:
Most recent Linux' OS' do not provide an easy way to create a dynamic support for libnsl.so.1 any longer and instead they link to libnsl.so.2* due to libnsl.so being symbolically linked to libnsl.so.2*. The library libnsl.so.2 de-contented several...
bhosts and lshosts should have an option to let them perform more like the scheduler
Currently, if I have a host with two exclusive resources in the lsf.cluster file <hostname> <model> <type> 1 () () () (!res1 !res2) If I run the following bhosts command, it acts like "grep" instead of like the scheduler, and rep...
