RTM: monitoring of multi nodes jobs


This request has already been submitted 9 years ago. I would like to know if it is possible to implement it now as we have more and more multi nodes jobs and this kind is more and more needed:

For LSF jobs submitted using "bsub ... -n x ...-R "... span[ptile=y]" ..." or compound jobs, this will be very interesting to have graph by hosts in addition of the current consolidated graphs to determine more precisely memory & cpu reservation for each host part of the jobs.

also, the "Ex Host: 8*mainserver1 (2*server3, 2*server2, 2*mainserver1, 2*server4) " line of the "Execution Environment" section in the "job details" view is confusing, mainly the first field.
would be less confusing something like "Ex Host: 8(2*mainserver1, 2*server2, 2*server3, 2*server4) "

    It should like you are wanting something along the lines of job->PerHostRusage->mem/cpu.

    In RTM 9.1.2 we added support for this:


    With the caveat that the multihost job needs to be launched with blaunch so that rusage is tracked for each part.

    Does that address your requirement?
