Add lsb.params setting to limit the number of times a job can be redispatched upon either a pre-exec failure of job initilization failure

We currently have jobs that will bounce from host to host either based upon a pre-exec failure, or a job initialization failure. This can impact > 500 hosts and cause an increase in MBD memory use. It would be nice to have a setting such as: MA...

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...

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...

Support Multi-threaded LIM with a Shared Memory Database for Scalability

It would be nice if LSF's LIM used a shared memory database and could accept multiple threads instead of having to constantly fork itself to return client data. The new setting to increase/decrease the LIM connection backlog was informative, but i...

Dump configs to standardized format for cluster comparisons

We have multiple stand-alone clusters, and frequently have issues with something working differently in one as opposed to another. The solution from our side is to use something like ansible/chef/cfEngine to build the clusters, but for our existin...

Add Regular Expressions for Project Limits and SLA Auto-Attach and Permissions

We utilize hierarchical projects and at times we would like to allow certain projects and certain functions, both that are a part of the hierarchy to utilize an SLA, for example, assume that the project has three levels project_code:finance_code:f...

Allow bjobs command to show the pre and post exec exitStatus/exitCode information

Right now, we require bhist to get any detail on pre/post exec error codes, it would be nice if we could get this from the job record via bjobs vs. bhist. bhist in very large environments is a non-starter for obtaining this status information.

Allow Users to specify a ClearCase 'cleartool' command but require that it be white listed first

Allow the users to override the CLEARTOOL binary path, but only if it's included in a white list configuration file in the $LSF_ENVDIR location. I would suggest something like: cat lsf.daemons.wrap.conf /usr/altira/bin/cleartool /some/authorized/...

Set more job variables in parent SBATCHD prior to forking the job SBATCHD/RES

I've been working with the Daemons Wrap source code trying to make the logging more presentable, and I've come accross a hurdle to effectively enhancing that integration. I need both the Job Start and Submit Times, and normally, I would just be ab...
