IBM Data and AI Ideas Portal for Clients

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

If you have not registered on this portal please register at http://ibm.biz/IBM-Data-and-AI-Portal-Register . To complete registration you will need to open the email you will receive from Aha to confirm your identity.

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 offering manager 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.

Administrators can configure max environment runtime for notebooks.

Currently, all Jupyter notebook environment runtimes are shut down automatically if they have been idle for longer than 18 hours.

We need a function to automatically stop notebook environment runtimes. just like the design of "idle timeout", we need max runtimes = 5d, and auto close notebook after 5days.

The function is so important for us to release more resources and prevent some users to allocate resources too long.

    The scenario is users try to allocate resources (GPU or large CPUs memory) so we need the max runtime setting.

    Some of our users can put an infinite loop inside the notebook to keep it always fake running and that kind of notebook would keep working and never idle timeout. We always need to delete it manually. My suggestion is administration can config max runtime and warning the user what is the run time, if cp4d could warning(mail?) users before the pod deleted that would be better!

    Administrator can disable or update the default idle timeout of CPU or GPU environment runtimes. Instructions -
