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.

INQUEUE PREEMPTION

Because "Preemption scheduling" is actually for the jobs in different queues. LSF today has no such feature or concept of in-queue preemption. the new feature maybe work like this: define a INQUEUE_PREEMPT=[[userA,80%] [userB,20%]] ... For example...

Fairshare dynamic priority to use job count instead of job slots

The fairshare formula uses job_slots with RUN_JOB_FACTOR. Looking to have a formula that uses a job_count that represents only the number of jobs (excluding the slots or tasks requested per job). A scenario for this is when a queue is set up to ...

Support or remove user defined dynamic resources from lsb.hosts file

Elim resources are used to present unique resources and values to the scheduler. Dynamic resources are not supported in the LSF simulator and are converted to static resources in the lsf.cluster file and in the lsf.shared file. However these resou...

Two Design Flaws in Run Limit Reporting in RTM

Currently in RTM, there two design gaps in the RunLimit features. They are: 1) No way to exclude queues such as 'short' 2) Emails are sent one at a time, which in our case results in 77k emails sent randomly. It would be better to 'consolidate' Em...

License Scheduler ENABLE_DYNAMIC_RUSAGE + FAST_DISPATCH combination

We are troubled by the slow dispatch time of jobs, when the license scheduler is involved. Even after lengthy optimization, the dispatch time remains at 10-25 seconds, which is not good. (note that LMSTAT time and interval is just 3 seconds). If t...

Provide Minor Enhancement to 'bjobs -env jobid' Command to search and return variables server side

The 'bjobs -env jobid' command is very useful, but in our environment, the job environment can be very large. We plan to use this command as a part of our ESUB modify controls and it could be called quite frequently. Therefore, it will generate a ...

Enable override of -u flag to docker in LSF

The docker LSF integration would be more useful if the user inside the container was not forced to be LSB_SUB_USER. It's not clear where this -u flag is being added to the docker command by LSF. The construction of this flag does not appear to be ...

Increase MAX_JOBID in PE environment - 4194303 too low

When using PE in LSF the maximum job ID is 4194303.We have already cycled through the range in 12 months and we'll likely do it twice this year.Having jobs with duplicate IDs causes a lot of problems with things like job accounting.

RC_Account visibility in RTM Job Info fields

IBM LSF Resource Connector has gone through many enhancements, like job level RC_Account. However, this field is not visible in RTM. This new filed should be added in RTM job information.

Add support to Kerberos ticket with new "renew-until" date for already submitted jobs

While using Kerberos ticket forwarding on a LSF cluster: Currently TGT found on the submission host is copied to LSF cache and forwarded to the execution host at job submission; These tickets can be renewed automatically by LSF until the TGT "rene...
