Add a JobID's column to the table grid_hosts_gpu and show in Job Details page

It would be very beneficial to reporting to see which jobid's are allocated to which jobs when it comes to the GPU assigned. This way, the user can look at the ELIM graphs and know that their job is actually using the GPU in question. Right now, y...

Add additional Metrics to the grid_clusters_perfmon_status table

From badmin show status add the following missing columns: Latest estimation start: - Next estimation start: - Estimation status: Not started Active estimator PIDs: - Elapsed time: 0:00:00 Number of jobs to estimate: 0 Number of estimated jobs:...

Add Resource Description to Table grid_hosts_resources

We currently have a need to view Shared Resources via their Description. It would be nice if: 1) This data was in the grid_hosts_resources table 2) There was a searchable description column under the Shared Resources Report view in RTM

Ability to limit user's views in RTM to select clusters

Reduces support because users can't flip to other clusters via Cluster drop-down menu to then ask questions about resources and usage or see other information that should only be for users of a particular cluster or why can't they find their infor...

Ability to specify cores or exclusive host for Benchmark job

Currently all benchmark jobs submitted via RTM use 1 core. Also, one cannot specify node to be exclusively used via bsub -x. This allows other jobs to land on same node and thus tainting benchmark numbers

Move away from having to set job_end_logged on every gridjobs and gridpend poller runs

The setting of job_end_logged to 0 every polling cycle can add as much as 100 seconds to every gridjobs or gridpend run. If instead, the poller were to capture the following SELECT MAX(last_updated) FROM grid_jobs* WHERE clusterid = ? Then, sinc...

Provide "bkill -C 'some comment' jobid" Comment Message in RTM's grid_jobs and grid_jobs_finished tables

We will be doing automated killing of workload in 2022, and now that LSF provides the 'bkill -C' option, we would like that Kill message to be stored in RTM for auditing the reasons why jobs were killed by automation.

Based upon the data collected from the 'gridperf' binary, keep a table of events type type 'mbdreconfig' & 'mbdrestart' and present in RTM

This is important as we don't often time capture a restart or a reconfig, it could even be as a result of a binary that is segfaulting and being restarted by LIM. It would be nice to be able to track these similar to the table below: MariaDB [cac...

RTM's gridparams binary misses many 'bparams -l -a' options

It's important for cross cluster auditing that the RTM system includes all 'bparams -l -a' output. Today, there are several of these options that are not captured making the auditing of cluster configuration via RTM incomplete. Having written the...

Allow Mass Changes of Both License Services and Clusters

In Cacti at page Console > Management > Devices, you have a dropdown option to "Change Settings". From here, you can select multiple devices, and then change select settings. It would be nice to be able to make these same changes for RTM obj...
