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.

Track a local directory duing job execution and report utilization details in job rusage

We would like to be able to, at submission time, specify a local directory that we would like to have LSF monitor the total size and files in and report in the Jobs RUSAGE periodically. This directory will be separate from the execCwd or the cwd. It should support the same patterns as the -cwd option in LSF supports. Additionally, we would like this data to be stored and graphed in RTM as two new Job Graphs. So, in summary: 1. Job Specification: bsub -ldir /some/local/directory/$LSB_JOBID.$LSB_JOBINDEX ./a.out 2. Report in bjobs -l output: Local Directory: /blah/blah/blah Local File Size: 20GB Local Files: 21,101 3. Store in RTM grid_jobs table the -ldir specification 4. Graph RUSAGE as two new Job Graphs 5. Report in the JOB_FINISHx Record 6. Report as a part of bhist/bacct
