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.

LSF Resource connector should select template for minimum number of servers

LSF Resource connector selects the template based on the resources and priority defined in the configuration file. This is good approach for a single job. However, when there are multiple jobs (which is the case mostly), this approach is not suitable.

Suppose there are two templates configured in Resource connector, one for single cpu server (higher priority) and other for 16 cpu server (lower priority). When a user submits 32 jobs, resource connector will configure 32 servers of first template. However, it would be wise to create 2 servers of second template. The same thing happens with memory.

So, LSF Resource Connector should have an option to select the template based on minimum number of servers. This will be make the deployment faster, less prone to errors and cheaper.
