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.

supplement RFE for retry task on different hosts (RFC4527) - Pimco

Here attached the discussion email thread:

Hi Nancy

As discussed over the phone, the proposed solution is as follows:

"The solution is to add an expired time for a task that need to be retried. Once the time has expired, the task can be retry on the same host."

Here are the following assumption with this RFE proposal:
1. The tasks that need to be retried will contribute to the resource request of a session, just like pending tasks.
2. A SIM that cannot get a task from the session(since all the left-over tasks had failed on it and the timer has not expired yet), will be unassigned from the session. That SIM may be re-assigned to the same session again with no special handling

With these assumptions, the tasks in a session has a better chance to get a SIM to run. The only concern is that during the time period where it cannot accept the failed task, the SIM will bind/unbind to the session repeatedly making the SIM unavailable.

Please take the description above and help create the RFE. Once you send me the RFE number, we will notify the team of the RFE and the priority for it.
