IBM Data and AI Ideas Portal for Customers

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.

CPU usage graph for a job in RTM

First, RTM version is 10.2.

Currently, RTM provides just two CPU graphs for a job, one is CPU Time For Job and the other is CPU Time Variation for Job.

but that two graphs is related with the time which a job used how much time.

But customer want to get intuitive and realistic data for a job's CPU usage.
In Linux system, we can see the CPU usage(%) for each process.
And we can make some charts and graphs for CPU usage in Analytics product.
But RTM doesn't provide as like that kinds of graph.

We think it is easier to check job resource usage and better to provide and explain to users.

    I was the customer with the line on the graph but it was lost when upgrading or patching a different issue and I just let it go. But yes being able to see it. Though if the line were introduced today being able to define a line equal to the slots and then a line equal to 2x the slots to cover the hyperthreads would be helpful.

    The current graph is not "user friendly" for non linux and non computer people. It isn't friendly to computer people either as it isn't the way most of them think about cpu usage on jobs. My users are in better shape because we have compressed our timescale to per minute so they only have to do 60 x slots to figure out the per minute. Though with hyperthreading that gets more challenging to know how well things are really leveraging the resources requested but not having to do the math at all would be even better.

    I had at one time introduced a line to the CPU Variation graph to show 100% utilization, but maybe it was lost. I did it for a customer. Maybe we need to bring that back.
