Thanks for the update - the GPU information is a good addition.
However, the alignment of the columns with the headers seems a bit off:

$ pestat -p gpu -G
Print only nodes in partition gpu
GRES (Generic Resource) is printed after each jobid
Hostname       Partition     Node Num_CPU  CPUload  Memsize  Freemem  GRES/node              Joblist
                    State Use/Tot  (15min)     (MB)     (MB)                         JobID(JobArrayID) User GRES/job ...

g004             gpu      mix   6  32    1.74*    95200    65647  gpu:gtx1080ti:2(S:0-1) 8692124(8536946_562) gailhail gpu=1 8692122(8536946_561) gailhail gpu=1

It looks as if the column 'Partition' needs to be four spaces wider.
