Configuration to enable resizable jobs

The resizable jobs feature is enabled by defining an application profile using the RESIZABLE_JOBS parameter in lsb.applications.

Configuration file

Parameter and syntax




  • When RESIZABLE_JOBS=Y jobs submitted to the application profile are resizable.

  • When RESIZABLE_JOBS=auto jobs submitted to the application profile are automatically resizable.

  • To enable cluster-wide resizable behavior by default, define RESIZABLE_JOBS=Y in the default application profile.


RESIZE_NOTIFY_CMD specifies an application-level resize notification command. The resize notification command is invoked on the first execution host of a running resizable job when a resize event occurs.

LSF sets appropriate environment variables to indicate the event type before running the notification command.
