So I am using sacct to generate daily reports of job run times that is 
imported into an external db for cost and projected use planning.

One thing I have noticed is that the END field for jobs with a state of 
FAILED is "Unknown" but the ELAPSED field has the time it ran.

It seems to me that END should be filled with the time the job failed, 
no? Is there a setting or something that can be done to do this? Or a 
schema so I could update the table(s) myself for any job with a state of 

All the Best,
