Improve Job Priority Output to Exceed 1e6 as APS can easily increase Per Job Priority above that value

There is currently a system limitation that Job Priories above 1e6 do not display correctly when using bjobs -o "blah" formatted output. This is currently causing us a monitoring issue when attempting to order jobs with a very high dynamic priorit...

About bjobs in different clusters

Suppose there are two clusters. These two clusters are being used by one business division. However, users who submit jobs are not aware of the cluster. They don't know what cluster they're using and they don't know that they need sourcing fo...

Dynamic priority based on jobarray length

We exclusively work with jobarrays at our company. We have a queue reserved for jobs that take no more than 3 minutes. A general rule of thumb is that small jobarrays at our company can be considered as interactive jobs where the user waits for th...

Enable License (LS) Visibility on Spectrum Application Center

We would like users to have visibility of the availability of solver license on LSF Application Center. We are using version 10.2.0.9 and were told by support that this feature is no longer supported. This is necessary as it enables users to have ...

fix systemctl script to restart sbatchd

The root sbatchd crashes frequently in our cluster (and without anything useful in the log), but systemctl is not configured to restart the daemon. Please see the details in the related support case, but essentially we need to make it so this daem...

Show unformatted pending reasons with bjobs -UF

Information for PENDING REASONS remains formatted for the command "bjobs -UF [-p|-p0|-p1|-p2|-p3] <jobid>" which makes it hard for scripts to parse the output. Current output: $: bjobs -UF -p3 <jobid> ... PENDING REASONS: Candidate hos...

bsub should accept a cpu_efficiency parameter to allow cpu over-commiting in the pool

It's rare for a job to achieve close to 100% cpu efficiency. Often, jobs have a peak cpu requirement during its execution lifetime but use less cpus in average. If bsub could be told that a job is expected to run with a given cpu efficiency, LSF c...

Change job submit time to include milliseconds for precision.

Job submit time to include milliseconds for precision. Instead of HH:MM:SS, make it like 12:29:05.1234. This will enable this column to be used as a unique identifier when generating data in an incremental fashion. We are extracting the RTM data a...

Create a User Interace and Process flow for API Key Generation, Approval, Use, and Revocation

We presently are evaluating Application Center's Web Services for job submission and control. However, many of our submission users are robots where the password is not known to user, but rather the users have sudo authority to submit jobs from sp...
