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....
Currently RTM contains quite a bit of information on current cluster state, but it provides limited information about the state of the scheduler, what job buckets exists, and the dispatch rate from these various buckets. Create an interface that p...
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, ...
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.
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 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...
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 ...
Why do we have to run "lspasswd" to register windows user's password in LSF ?
Customers hope they don't need to use lspasswd in Windows. But LSF needs user's password to impersonate user before running user's job on a Windows execution host. This is due to the designed feature of user authentication in Windows. Windows need...
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 ...
