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.
Symphony 7.1 Advanced Edition has been installed on two HP Gen 9 blade server srunning Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard. The blades have two Intel Xeon E5-2697 processors each with 14 cores. Windows and the WMIC tools all report the correct number of processors (28) as expected. However in the PMC, Symphony only reports 14 cpus for each server.
The bios on one of the servers was updated to Enable Node Interleaving, which has the effect of creating a single NUMA processor group containing 28 cores. Now in the PMC Symphony reports 28 cpus for the server.
Because a spawned process inherits the processor group of its parent process and all Symphony processes (including services) are spawned from lim, with NUMA enabled only one of the server's processor groups can ever be used by Symphony. This immediately halves the core count of the cluster.
