[slurm-users] slurmdbd not showing job accounting

I have noticed on several clusters that sreport can be upto one hour out of
date i.e. it will update on the hour every hour.

sacct does not behave this way and is always up to date.

I cannot see this stated in the docs or see any config settings to control
this but it happens on the last 17.02 cluster I checked.

It is documented that you need to create the cluster in the database.

It is not documented that the accounting system won't work until you
restart slurmdbd multiple times before it starts collecting accounting

Also, none of the necessary restarts are needed on an upgrade -- only
when slurm is initialized for a new cluster.
