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.

Decreasing cpu near the end of job


Some jobs are consuming several cpus at the beginning of the jobs.
But, near the end, only a gui is displayed which consumes for example only one CPU.

It should be nice if we could decrease number of cpus.
I know it's possible for memory using rusage and decay option.

Is it possible to implement such a behaviour for cpus ?

Thanks and best regards


Best regards

    Indeed, resizing job seems to be promising.
    This feature is available at appllication level.

    Would it be possible to enable it at queue or cluster level ?

    Thanks you

    This can be achieved view the "bresize" command to shrink the jobs allocation down to just a single slot.
