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.

Make hostgroups a valid parameter for all commands which also accept hostnames as parameter

Many LSF commands accept a hostname as parameter (bhosts, lshosts, lsload ecc.) to show the results only for the named hosts. Not all of them also accept a hostgroup as parameter (bhosts does, lshosts and lsload don't). To show the results for hostgroups for these commands requires additional scripting. All commands which operate on hosts should also be able to operate on hostgroups.

    This one is a bit of a legacy design decision. LSF is essentially two layers...base (lim+res and the ls* commands) and batch (mbd+sbd and the b*). Host groups are defined in the batch layer and not available in the base layer. While conceptually simple, changing this behaviour is quite complicated.
