LSF Explorer support for multiple clusters with the same name

Customer has multiple clusters with the same cluster name. Changing LSF cluster names to be unique is not an option. Their environment is large. Other products in the LSF family support this. LSF_LIC_SCHED_CLUSTER_ALIAS addresses the concern for L...

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 ...

Allow RTM to define the level of pending reasons to collect

Currently RTM does not provide any pending reason precision to be collected. As such, in our case, there are way to many pending reasons in the system which makes the feature unusable. We would like to have a global setting that does the following...
