I knew a while ago but have since forgot the reason.  It seems that in
Debian there is a package called "slurm" which is a network interface


So the package for the slurm that we (on this list) know is called slurm-llnl:


I guess because of this, the configuration file is in /etc/slurm-llnl/
on Debian and, thus, Ubuntu as well.  I can only assume this means
that the network interface monitor came first [as a Debian
package]...but I'm not 100% sure about this.
