[slurm-users] Cluster usage, filtered by partition

In a word, nothing that's guaranteed to be stable. I got my start from this reply on the XDMoD list in November 2019. Worked on 8.0:


The recommended way of doing this would be to use XDMoD's Report Generator to periodically email you a document containing the chart images.


This will only get you the images, though and not the numerical values.

The more complex alternative is to use curl to query XDMoD directly. An example of how to download chart images is in the automated regression tests that verify image export:


See the chartSettingsProvider() for how to create the data to send and testChartSettings() for where to POST it. To get the raw numbers you can change the 'format'
setting from 'png' to 'csv' to get the raw data in csv format. Note that you would be accessing an internal XDMoD api which could change or even be removed in new releases.

Oh, that looks useful! Is the XDMoD API documented somewhere?
