Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

Post ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,

  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you

  3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The product management team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive notification on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

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...

bjobs -o all

Currently there is a large list of -o options, which are hugely beneficial. We have a large bjobs -o <long list> -json report that is frequently run for metrics and query reduction (to provide an API to get cached data) but we have to update...

Adopt the fleet api for Amazon Web Services to improve resource/host types acquisition times.

Permission model for Dashboards and Reports

In our environment, a few different teams will make use of different reporting capabilities in LSF Explorer in different scopes. Therefore they will be creating different reports and dashboards. So there is the need to introduce something like a p...

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...

blusers improvement to show both external and hoarding jobs in one listing

Hi, I didn't find an option in "blusers" command that will give me the full list of jobs that use specific license token. There are two options available, each gives partial picture and the output is in different format. So it takes unnecessary e...

Reduce the Scheduler impact of a "bmod -sp"

Currently, a bmod is a very expensive activity in LSF, but running a bmod to simply change a jobs priority, should be a low impact changes. What we would request is to have the bmod that simply does an '-sp' to be handled in a way that has the lea...

Improve Various Components of the Current Scheduler Adlgorithm

Currently, though the Scheduler supports threads, the processing is not a thread per bucket, but rather a threads that are used on a per bucket basis and buckets are still handled serially, which has led us to Host Match times around 400 seconds. ...

Enable the Scheduler Debug to Run Continually and Provide JSON Output via 'badmin' Standard Output

Currently the Scheduler debug must be written to a file, and the scheduler debug information is not easily accessible through the management CLI. What would be better would be to have an MBD parameter to enable all the time as is done with 'badmin...
