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.

Graphing of Application Profile based limits in RTM

Application charts in RTM today do not display application limits. With new version of LSF 10.1.10, the lsb.application will allow putting limits on an application. We would want to track these limits as we are using same set of queues for multipl...

Move away from having to set job_end_logged on every gridjobs and gridpend poller runs

The setting of job_end_logged to 0 every polling cycle can add as much as 100 seconds to every gridjobs or gridpend run. If instead, the poller were to capture the following SELECT MAX(last_updated) FROM grid_jobs* WHERE clusterid = ? Then, sinc...

Provide "bkill -C 'some comment' jobid" Comment Message in RTM's grid_jobs and grid_jobs_finished tables

We will be doing automated killing of workload in 2022, and now that LSF provides the 'bkill -C' option, we would like that Kill message to be stored in RTM for auditing the reasons why jobs were killed by automation.

Based upon the data collected from the 'gridperf' binary, keep a table of events type type 'mbdreconfig' & 'mbdrestart' and present in RTM

This is important as we don't often time capture a restart or a reconfig, it could even be as a result of a binary that is segfaulting and being restarted by LIM. It would be nice to be able to track these similar to the table below: MariaDB [cac...

RTM's gridparams binary misses many 'bparams -l -a' options

It's important for cross cluster auditing that the RTM system includes all 'bparams -l -a' output. Today, there are several of these options that are not captured making the auditing of cluster configuration via RTM incomplete. Having written the...
