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.

Users need notifications when jobs are PSUSP due to pre-exec failures, and JOB_CONTROLS do not work because the job isn't RUN when it is suspended. We also need a tunable parameter to have these jobs killed after some amount of time.

RLM dataloader

The LSF License Scheduler now supports RLM as well as FlexLM, but LSF Explorer only supports FlexLM. An RLM dataloader is needed for Explorer to allow the RLM licences configured in License Scheduler to be monitored.

Hardware utilization by hostgroup

Currently in LSF explorer, hardware utilization report exist. In this report one hostname can only have one hostgroup. However in practical scenario one LSF host could belong to multiple hostgroups and we need reporting for each hostgroup.
