Currently the Session Manager and Service Director operate in the same CGROUP on the first execution host which causes a race condition that if a task on the first execution host pushes the memory use above the memory limit (aka mem-eater process)...
Allow the LSF Planner to ignore cetain select criteria
The current LSF Planner is unable to create a plan if the "bsub -R "select[blah>blah]" ./a.out" select clause does not match any hosts. This is very counter productive. For certain ELIM based resources such as 'freescratch', 'freetmp', etc. The...
Allow the INELIBIBLE flag to apply to Job Slots and License Scheduler Limits
Currently, the INELIGIBLE flag works for several limit classes. Unfortunately, it does not support either SLOT or License Project limits. These are important for using APS with ELIGIBLE pending time calculations and the queue limit of ELIGIBLE_PEN...
In the 'License Scheduler' product, monitor only necessary features instead of all
Hello, sometimes, we encounter slowness (freezes) on LSF jobs scheduling due to big slowness in licenses monitoring (lmstat) from License Scheduler because license features used for some resources under LS management are part of license services m...
FLEXlm supports 'uncounted node locked' Feature Types Report the Checkouts for Them
By default RTM always report 0 max license and 0 in use. However, if you look at the checkouts, there are several in use. Can we get RTM to at least report the number of checked out licenses for this feature class?
Provide an Option to break out of 'bsub' if a job will not submit due to a user hitting their pending job limit
This is a major problem when using a web service to control jobs, you would much rather have the binary end with an exit code than continually block in a loop saying you have reached your pending jobs limit. It's really bad design behavior IMHO.
Allow Flagging Jobs for Reservation Through Rules and/or Through a "bsub --plan" Option
Today, reservations in LSF are handled by the Top X jobs by ordered by Dynamic Priority using the variable MAX_JOB_RESERVE. We believe that this is a shotgun approach. We have millions of jobs a day that require 1 cores and less than 1GB of memory...
Allow to set/modify the same option in multiple esubs
Currently a specific option can only be set or modified once through an esub, even if multiple esub's are run. If an option is set a second time, the error message ... Conflict parameter <PARAMETER_NAME> - Ignored. appears. There are at leas...
Clean left over job's daemon processes after job res finished
We have several workflows that the job script can run tools that will spawn processes in the backgroup or as daemons that will stay active once the job script ends. Since the job script ends, res will end with the exit code of the job script, but ...
