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.
To enable increase in the memory for a job when overall memory resource limit is in place in lsb.resources
Case#Case number TS001621460 can be referred for this RFE.
Explanation was: I have discussed with development team again, currently, LSF can not satisfy the increase memory request by bmod command for a running job when there is a general limit defined in lsb.resources. This should be a limitation. Because the general limit defined in lsb.resources which is handled by scheduler, but bmod is handled by mbatchd. When bmod a job, mbatchd cannot know whether the operation will break general limit, so it rejects the request directly. This behavior is introduced together with lsb.resources and hasn't changed ever since. I totally agree with you that it should be re-considered from user point of view especially when the user just have one job running and want to enlarger the memory usage.
