Thanks Ole!

>From one of the threads you referred to: “People have come up with various home grown solutions to save that data.” That’s my case too at the moment, I currently have a daemon that extracts this data as it’s still live in scontrol show jobs, and puts it in a separate database… Several other interesting methods seem to exist, will look into them. Also hope it makes into one of SchedMD’s upcoming feature enhancements!

This seems to be a FAQ :-) Please read the list threads "How to get 
command from a finished job" and "Show detailed information from a 
finished job".

Answer: After job completion you can only ask for the information which is 
in the Slurm database. The "showjob" command does that for you.
