Add Memory Statistics to Daily Statistics

When I wrote the daily statistics interface years ago, I had very little comprehension of the concept of Memory Efficiency, and therefore did not add memory_reserved, and mem_used, and max_memory to the daily statistics tables. But in todays HPC, ...

Increase max export rows for RTM

The default maximum number of rows RTM can export to Excel is 50k. It's possible to increase this (https://www.ibm.com/support/pages/modify-number-export-rows-you-can-set-rtm-console), but would be nice to have a larger option built into RTM.

When submitting a job to a CGROUPv2 Compatible System Modify cpu.shares based upon the task count requested by the job

LSF would support CGROUPv2 better, if it adjusted the number of CPU shares for a job based upon the number of cpus/tasks requested by the job.

Add Effective Memory Utilization to All Statistics Tables

RTM maintains a consistent set of ETL's across multiple dimensions. It is the same table structure for all of these ETL's. However, a key metric is missing from the ETL's and it's the effective memory utilization. In other words sum(max_memory) /s...

Allow the user to save multiple cluster dashboard layouts by name

Right now, the Cluster Dashboard is very monolithic, you every time you go there, you have to set it up the way you like it. Yes, you can save the dashboard, but it would be nice to have multiple saved dashboards so that you can quickly obtain the...

Allow Tagging of LSF Clusters and Filtering from Dashboard and Managmenet pages

Currently we have a lot of clusters for various functions and purposes. It would be nice to be able to tag clusters by function, production/test/dev, etc and then be able to filter the various pages by tagname. It would help cut down on clutter wh...

Support or remove user defined dynamic resources from lsb.hosts file

Elim resources are used to present unique resources and values to the scheduler. Dynamic resources are not supported in the LSF simulator and are converted to static resources in the lsf.cluster file and in the lsf.shared file. However these resou...

Two Design Flaws in Run Limit Reporting in RTM

Currently in RTM, there two design gaps in the RunLimit features. They are: 1) No way to exclude queues such as 'short' 2) Emails are sent one at a time, which in our case results in 77k emails sent randomly. It would be better to 'consolidate' Em...

When a Benchmark job fails It would be nice to see the bsub used to submit the job

We can manually construct the actual bsub, but it would be nice to be able to cut and paste it when editing the Benchmark job so we can test that it actually will work. In one case we were getting "Queue Permission Errors" and it having that bsub ...

Provide Minor Enhancement to 'bjobs -env jobid' Command to search and return variables server side

The 'bjobs -env jobid' command is very useful, but in our environment, the job environment can be very large. We plan to use this command as a part of our ESUB modify controls and it could be called quite frequently. Therefore, it will generate a ...
