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:

Post your ideas

Post ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,

  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you

  3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The product management team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive notification on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

Block hosts per resource status or add hosts blocking in Notebook configuration

Conductor failing to start notebooks remain in tentative as it is unable to detect the host mem/cpu usage. Need the feature in Notebook configuration to block hosts per resource status or add hosts blocking in Notebook configuration.

    This has been a while. Can you please let us know if you have an update on this. We would like a normal consumer user to migrate notebook from one host to other when the notebook is stuck in tentative state.

    Cluster admin observed that some host is very busy, but ego still allocates it to some service, which fails to start eventually (hangs in tentative state). Stopping and starting the service again, the same host will be allocated since it's not closed or blocked.

    The document states ( thresholds can be set for internal and external resources in ego.cluster host section. Ego will close hosts when >1 thresholds are passed. But that is only for static hosts and mostly used by LSF. In most Conductor clusters, hosts are dynamically added. If this feature can be enhanced to support dynamic hosts in Conductor, it would be very useful.
