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.

Prevent non-LSF users from running computing jobs on hosts

The customer would like LSF to include a functionality, where LSF prevents non-LSF users from accessing an LSF host's computing resources. This includes even access via rsh, ssh, or similar methods alike. The purpose of this function is so that LSF fully controls the usage of computing resources. Can this functionality please be added? Thanks for your help in advance.

    There is one example to use Linux PAM module to control access of LSF hosts, https://github.com/IBMSpectrumComputing/lsf-plugins/tree/master/pam_lsf

    LSF itself does not require login access to a node, so you can set /etc/nologin to prevent login/rsh/ssh to the machine.
