Adding forking child to sbatchd can prevent significant delays and cascading problems associated with slow cgroup writes.

Platform LSF's root sbatchd daemon on the execution host gets stuck while writing to one of the cgroup subsystem. This causes the host to show unreachable status, and no new jobs will be dispatched to this host. Jobs which were already running on ...

LSF / Extend "span[hosts=xx]" capability to several hosts to optimize cpu utilization in exclusive context

There is no way today to optimize CPU utilization over several hosts, i.e. to specify on how many servers the job should be dispatched, and let LSF use all available cpu on these hosts. This works fine with 1 single host, using cpu range and "span...

RTM: limits monitoring

We identified the needs of user limits monitoring, the blimits -w output accounting & per user|host|queue|hostgroup related graphs.

Set 2 levels for loadSched

1. By design, if the loadSched condition is not satisfied, no jobs can be dispatched to the host. Even if we submit a job which will not use the lacking resource, the job can't be dispatched to the host, either. 2. We think this is a waste of the ...

Can bstop release slots in order that other jobs can start on the same host ?

Here is an example. I tried the following case. gnx5561 has been booked by advanced reservation: RSVID TYPE USER NCPUS RSV_HOSTS TIME_WINDOW res0 group res0 3/4 gnx5561:3/4 7/28/18/0-7/30/12/0 I have launched one job reserving 3 cpus (857274). It ...

RTM: add grid cache directory purge feature

currently, the directory use for job graphs (specified in the "Console->Grid Settings->Paths->Grid Cache Dir" field) is never clean up. can you please add feature to purge this directory to avoid disk space saturation ?

Cgroups CPU subsystem support

We want to ensure that jobs get the CPU time according to the amount of slots requested, especially on nodes shared by multiple jobs. This has always been an important goal in HPC environments. To achieve this we can use affinity, however CPU affi...

bjobs -o reserved_mem or bhosts -o reserved_mem

To see how much memory is reserved on a host, we need to parse the bhosts -l <hostname> command, and it doesn't give us info about which job is reserving how much memory. I'd either like to see one of the following: bhosts -o 'jobid reserved...
