FYI: My Slurm tools for displaying batch job user process information have 
been updated.  Besides the user process list from "ps", a summary of the 
number of processes and threads is now printed as well.  We use this for 
monitoring the sanity of user jobs.  For example, we often see jobs that 
run too many threads per process and overload the CPUs.

The tools are:

* psjob <jobid>      for all user processes in a job
* psnode <nodelist>  for all user processes on a node or list of nodes

Download the psjob and psnode tools from:
