[slurm-users] Nagios or Other Monitoring Plugins

We're moving to Prometheus for lots of our monitoring functions.  We've got
nagios and ganglia in place, but Prometheus and Grafana makes a really nice
combo for monitoring and alerting.

There's even an exporter for Slurm-
https://github.com/vpenso/prometheus-slurm-exporter that includes node
data, job information, and scheduling statistics.  Haven't had a chance to
install that yet, but I expect we'll be doing that soon: monitoring
scheduler performance is one area we need to watch a little closer.
