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.

[RFE][CS] - PMC becomes very slow during heavy workload

PMC becomes very slow when there is heavy workload running on a large Grid. Issue is seen on Resource Group, Resource plan, Consumer and Consumer Properties pages, however performance of Consumer Properties page is particularly bad. It takes more than 1 minute to load the page. Ideally performance shouldn't be impacted by workload when viewing static data like Consumer Properties. We don't see high CPU or memory utilization by VEMKD or WEBGUI during the issue. Slowness is seen in multiple browsers and with users from same location as the Grid Master. Latency, Client PC performance or browser is not a factor. Attaching a screenshot of IE inspect element for Consumer Properties page where several functions are seen taking very long time. Getting consumer details via command line is fast.
