We use sacctmgr list stats for our Slurmdbd check

Our Nagios check is

RESULT=$(/usr/local/slurm/latest/bin/sacctmgr list stats)
if [ $? -ne 0 ]
        echo "ERROR: cannot connect to database"
        exit 2
echo "$RESULT" | head -n 4
exit 0

I'd usually use some simple sacctmgr command.
Something like "sacctmgr list cluster".

That said, we're running a single slurmdbd instance since slurmctld does
some caching etc. Do you have multiple that you need to check individually?
