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.

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.

Reporting both host-based pending reason and main pending reason

"LSF does not support reporting both host-based pending reason and main pending reason (about license)." Let me provide a portion of the bsub statement from our case to exemplify the customer's dilemma. bsub -R "rusage[mem=3000.00:duration=1m,md_r...

Ability to specify cores or exclusive host for Benchmark job

Currently all benchmark jobs submitted via RTM use 1 core. Also, one cannot specify node to be exclusively used via bsub -x. This allows other jobs to land on same node and thus tainting benchmark numbers

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, ...

GPU Guaranteed Resource Reservation

Currently Guaranteed Resource Pools in LSF can fulfill SLAs based on slots, memory, licenses, or packages (slots + memory). With more demand for GPU resources in a cluster, it would be beneficial to add GPU resources to a Guaranteed Resource Pool....
