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.

owner of res.log

I'd like to ask about ownership of the res log file.

In our case,

We are using the directory /tmp on each server for $LSF_LOGDIR.

This is for managing log file size.

Files in the /tmp directory are automatically deleted if there are no updates for a certain amount of time.

The permissions of /tmp are as follows.
drwxrwxrwt. 21 root root 4096 Jun 8 15:38 tmp

Normally, the permissions of the / tmp directory should be 777.

Becasue of the above two things,
The ownership of the res.log file becomes the user who submitted the job.

Here is support team's reproduced steps.

1. change permission of $LSF_TOP/log directory to 1777
2. delete all res log
3. submit a job by user1 instead of LSF admin.
4. owner of res.log is user1

Can you change these logic?

By default, after LSF installed, $LSF_LOGDIR is "drwxr-xr-x root".
However, $ LSF_LOGDIR can be any directory and can also have 777 permissions.
And res.log file can be deleted.

I would like to make ownership of res.log file as account lsfadmin.
