IBM Data and AI Ideas Portal for Customers

This portal is to open public enhancement requests against products and services offered by the IBM Data & AI organization. To view all of your ideas submitted to IBM, create and manage groups of Ideas, or create an idea explicitly set to be either visible by all (public) or visible only to you and IBM (private), use the IBM Unified Ideas Portal (

Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Search existing ideas

Start by searching and reviewing ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted, and add a comment, vote, or subscribe to updates on them if they matter to you. If you can't find what you are looking for,

Slow running HPO jobs

We are seeing some latency on our platform when we submit a HPO job. When we submit a HPO job via WMLA we see that it is taking ~14 seconds to launch a trial in spite of asking number of parallel runs. Just to give you an idea, if we have latency of 14 secs for a model which runs in 100 secs…and a user submits a job asking for 100 parallel runs then latency adds substantial amount of time to the overall job execution. i.e. in theory, the job should have completed in 100 secs, but, with latency the job execution goes to 1400 + 100 secs.

Until now this had not been a problem because most of our workloads were model fitting that would go for hours, so a few seconds here or there wouldn't matter make a dent … but as we move onto simulations with relatively quick runtimes, this is becoming a big problem.

    Is it possible to know when would this be available like an ETA.
