I think the problem is your ancient Slurm 18.08 version!  It does not 
handle correctly the newer "squeue -O" format options, see 

The pestat script uses this command:

squeue -t RUNNING -h -O 'State: ,JobID: ,JobArrayID: ,UserName: 
,GroupName: ,StartTime: ,EndTime: ,TimeUsed: ,Partition: ,NumNodes: 
,tres-per-node: ,NodeList: ,Name:'

The only solution is to upgrade Slurm :-(  Or maybe use an old version of 
pestat before I switched from -o to -O formats:
