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.

bmod jobs for per queue, or per user

Currently bmod runs per job so if there are 20000 running jobs, I've to run bmod 20000 times, one for each job. Can bmod have functionality like bkill to update bulk jobs , based on certain criteria like for user, queue, hostgroup etc ?

    We will consider this for inclusion in a future release.

    I believe bkill like options with bmod would help manage farms much better during downtimes.
    When there is a downtime, there is no concern of scheduling getting blocked.
    currently bmod can be run for one job at a time , I think it would help alot to run single bmod to update resources for all jobs of a given user or a given project or a given queue.

    Let me know if need more information.

    We're not clear whether you are looking for additional filters, or for bmod to take a list of job ids?
    some_selection_criteria | bmod something

    "bmod" is a relatively expensive operation. Executing changes in bulk would block scheduling while those changes are applied.
