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.

We're going to use the preemption through the following settings.

Begin Queue
QUEUE_NAME = test99
HOSTS = all
End Queue

Begin Queue
QUEUE_NAME = test1
HOSTS = all
End Queue

Can I prevent test1 not to be preempted if the job is in interactive mode?

Let say, I have a user in test1 and doing Matlab with –Is option for interactive mode, even he/she is using test1, can I still make it not preemptable by test99?

Another one I want to be preemptable is by the number of the jobs of the users. I am thinking if a user's job exceed certain number, let say 1500, then his 1500 jobs can be preemptable.

    We have considered this request and it is not something we are able to deliver in the future. If there is broad interest for this, it can be resubmitted in 18 months.
