Multiple esubs (master + remote) in a multicluster setup
We use LSF in a multicluster configuration. We also use an esub to dynamically assign which jobs are sent to each cluster. As far as I'm aware, only one esub (on the master) can be used. We would like to have functionality for esubs on the remote ...

Adjust login messages in LSF Explorer for better troubleshooting
We are facing a strange behaviour with the messages for a failed login at LSF Explorer Server. There are three scenarios: The user is not able to the system on the server where LSF Explorer is installed - hence the user is not able to login to LSF...
RTM GPU Wall time statistic is limited to "only Finished Exclusive job has GPU wall time reported and it based on DCGM".We would like to see statistic for GPU wall time usage regardless job exist status and GPU mode. Also because GPUs are occupied...
We wold like to have the ability to free up a job slot when a lsfadmin suspends a job due to some valid reasons. In our case, we are trying to run a script to check if the user has reached the quota on their current run directory, and if they are ...
The docker LSF integration would be more useful if the user inside the container was not forced to be LSB_SUB_USER. It's not clear where this -u flag is being added to the docker command by LSF. The construction of this flag does not appear to be ...

allow to limit cpu usage to the number of slots requested
currently, when a user submit a job, there's no way in LSF to limit the cpu consumption.
recently, we discover that it's possible to limit cpu usage OS side using cgroup, by putting a value in the 'cpu.cfs_quota_us' file of the '/sys/fs/...
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...
Ability to limit user's views in RTM to select clusters
Reduces support because users can't flip to other clusters via Cluster drop-down menu to then ask questions about resources and usage or see other information that should only be for users of a particular cluster or why can't they find their infor...
