Make License Scheduler Container Aware

Presently, when a job runs on an LSF host while using a container technology, the hostname that is posted to "lmstat" is generally not the name of the host running the LSF jobs. Therefore, as container use becomes more prevalent, License Scheduler...

cores limitations using affinity

In our cluster, we are very often impacted by jobs under reserving cpus (using -n option of bsub). for ex, we have a user group using a GUI for days. When the user close the GUI, it fires thousands of tar/bzip2 -9 to compress log files, making exe...

Add Tooltips for Various LSF Attributes

Today, on many Cacti pages, table headers include tooltips that explain the dimensions that are displayed in the table. It would be nice to have that for the 13 standard load indexes in LSF, and be able to pull the description from lsf.shared for ...

Have LSF track the number of status changes and requeues for a job over time

Basically, right now, there is no way to look at LSF's jobInfo record to know how many times a job has been requeued via either a pre-exec/jobstarter failure, or from a manual requeue. Additionally, there is no way to determine how many times a jo...

Threshold for over allocation in License Scheduler

Add a LIM Showstatus 'lsadmin' Option

Today, in LSF, there is a "badmin showstatus" that gives us information such as reconfig time, restart times, host counts, user counts, etc. It would be nice to have an 'lsadmin showstatus' option as well. I would think the following would be good...

Have the gridalarms plugin respect Maintenance Schedules like it parent plugin thold does

The gridalarms Cacti plugin was initially a fork of the thold plugin which supports the concept of a Maintenance Schedules, but this functionality was never implemented in gridalarms. We would like to see if that functionality can be added to grid...

Enhance database_purge_cluster.php to have an 'all' option

This --clusterid=all would remove any clusters not currently found in the grid_clusters table. So, the deletes would look something like: DELETE FROM some_table WHERE clusterid NOT IN (SELECT clusterid FROM grid_clusters) Also, the help on this ...

Deprecate License Scheduler DYNAMIC setting and support RUSAGE DURATION natively

Currently License Scheduler does not support jobs that use a DURATION on a license reservation in either Fast Dispatch or Cluster Mode. We would prefer that License Scheduler follow LSF properly in all three modes, and deprecate/remove the DYNAMIC...
