Add support for GPU jobs in brun

Currently, the brun command can force a non-gpu job to run using various numbers of CPU's on one to many hosts, but this is not possible for GPU jobs. Add the ability to specify the GPU's or gpu_id's for a forced run gpu job to use, and follow the...

Expanding the host list for bjobs-m

If we puts a list variable containing about 1300 equipment into the bjobs(bjobs -u all -m "$list"), a segmentation fault (core dump) occurs. Dev checked code. The host list in bjobs -m supports 512 hostnames at most. The host to put in bjobs ...

Enhance bmod to not allow modifying a jobs memory reservation to not exceed the total additional reservable memory on the host if the job is running

This is important if a users wants to either decrease of increase a memory reservation for a running job. We have some applications that reserved multiple CPU's and large amounts of memory. These jobs are long tailed, and once they reach the long ...

LSF 10.1 fix 601504 the rate limiter

There is a request for the rate limiter(LSF_PROXYD_PORT). All batch queries (bsub, bhosts, bjobs, bqueues, etc) connect lsfproxyd daemons to request token first. When they get token, mbatchd respond them and transmit data to these commands. These ...

Update lsf.shared with up-to-date CPU models

The file `lsf.shared` provided with Spectrum LSF is outdated. The CPU models listed seem to be 10 years old and older and there don't seem to be any updates from IBM. I suggest that IBM regularly updates this file with up-to-date CPU models and me...

Support Host Based ELIM Total/Available and Reservation information in JSON output

In Fix Pack 14, the bhosts command has been enhanced to support the "-o all -json" option, and thank you. However, what is missing are the host level ELIM Total/Available and Reserved values that you can currently only obtain through the "bhosts -...

In the world of Multi-core processors, the context switches per second has become a KPI. It should be a standard performance metric like mem, r1m, etc.

When we try to oversubscribe hosts, it would be very beneficial to have ctx/second available as a base metric. It's available in all OS' these days. We could set a busy threshold for that say above 40k/second. For the longest time (maybe 31 years)...

Allows Session Scheduler Account Directory and moving parts to support the lsf.conf variable LSB_STDOUT_DIRECT.

We recently were able to confirm that if the user leaves off the SSCHED_ACCT_DIR in lsb.params, that they can set the same as an environment variable, and eventually the Session Scheduler account file will end up in that location, but the users re...

Support JSON Output Format for the LSB Stream File

We have a number of downstream uses for the LSB Stream file. One of the downsides of the current format is that it can be difficult to read and parse. If this file where had an options to be written in JSON format, it would be much easier to consu...
