Allow to set/modify the same option in multiple esubs
Currently a specific option can only be set or modified once through an esub, even if multiple esub's are run. If an option is set a second time, the error message ... Conflict parameter <PARAMETER_NAME> - Ignored. appears. There are at leas...
Allow Flagging Jobs for Reservation Through Rules and/or Through a "bsub --plan" Option
Today, reservations in LSF are handled by the Top X jobs by ordered by Dynamic Priority using the variable MAX_JOB_RESERVE. We believe that this is a shotgun approach. We have millions of jobs a day that require 1 cores and less than 1GB of memory...
In the world of Multi-core processors, the context switches per second has become a KPI. It should be a standard performance metric like mem, r1m, etc.
When we try to oversubscribe hosts, it would be very beneficial to have ctx/second available as a base metric. It's available in all OS' these days. We could set a busy threshold for that say above 40k/second. For the longest time (maybe 31 years)...

In Fix Pack 14, the bhosts command has been enhanced to support the "-o all -json" option, and thank you. However, what is missing are the host level ELIM Total/Available and Reserved values that you can currently only obtain through the "bhosts -...
Create a way to prevent a job with an SLA from using another SLA's hosts/slots/memory if the other SLA is under-committed
LSF hosts come and go, and when you create an allocation that uses exact numbers, there are times when a Pool can be over and under committed. In the case of an under-committed pool today, consumers from other pools can leverage free slots from th...
