I have a memory that it's possible to use "sreport" to show you what 
amount of time jobs were waiting for what TRES - in other words whether 
they were waiting for CPUs, memory, GPUs, etc (or some combination).

Ah here you go..

sreport -t percent -T ALL cluster utilization

That breaks things down by all the trackable resources on your system.

Hope that helps!
