FairShare User/Project internal data size limitation

As per the support case - we are hitting the limitation on how many users/projects we can have defined in our most complex cluster in ARM. This is causing us to have to be very careful with any adjustments / updates and stop using automation and m...

Change job submit time to include milliseconds for precision.

Job submit time to include milliseconds for precision. Instead of HH:MM:SS, make it like 12:29:05.1234. This will enable this column to be used as a unique identifier when generating data in an incremental fashion. We are extracting the RTM data a...
