IBM Spectrum LSF (LSF, originally Platform Load Sharing Facility) is a workload management platform, job scheduler, for distributed high performance computing (HPC) by IBM.

Details[edit]

It can be used to execute batch jobs on networked Unix and Windows systems on many different architectures.[2][3] LSF was based on the Utopia research project at the University of Toronto.[4]

In 2007, Platform released Platform Lava, which is a simplified version of LSF based on an old version of LSF release, licensed under GNU General Public License v2.[5] The project was discontinued in 2011, succeeded by OpenLava.

In January, 2012, Platform Computing was acquired by IBM.[6] The product is now called IBM Spectrum LSF.
