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...
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...
This is the current bbot/btop functionality:- Group administrators can change the position of all jobs submitted by users who are members of the user group within a queue (move the selected job before/after the first/last job with the same priorit...

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...

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...
