Improving job status problem due to defunct process
Sometimes, defunct can occur in job processes for a variety of reasons. For example, 29460 below is one of the processes of some job. ps -ef | grep bg92
bg92.pa+ 29460 1 1 2022 ? 08:03:02 [Novas] <defunct> And if a defunct process occurs, L...
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...
hostcache auto-delete function in the mbatchd restart
Dynamic hosts remain in the cluster unless you intentionally remove them.And the manual related to it is as follows.https://www.ibm.com/docs/en/spectrum-lsf/10.1.0?topic=cluster-remove-dynamic-hostsSuppose we delete the hostcache file, not modify ...
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...
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...
Have LSF Handle ZOMBI job searching using either BTREE or HASH ALGO's
Large number of ZOMBI jobs can impact very large clusters operations resulting in high backlogs and additional lost job status. Improving the ZOMBI search algorithm from Linear Search to BTREE or HASH would reduce this impact.
Enhance the Support Tool to be able to remove ZOMBI jobs and create a log of exec hosts and pgids that need to be cleaned
We had an issue where LSF could not keep up with dispatch due to high numbers of ZOMBI jobs. We would like the ability to shut down LSF and clean up the ZOMBI jobs via a Database repair to accelerate the time-to-restore of the LSF clusters.
Make Queue Open/Close/Act/Inact 'all' Requests a single event
We recently had a serious issue that required us to close/inact all of our queues, and then perform a database repair using the IBM support tool. However, when we started LSF, all but one of the queues was Open/Act again. This was due to the suppo...
