Hi, Ole:

Thanks for the link to your tools. I'll take a closer look at them.

I wanted to make sure it wasn't something Slurm already had before I
started writing my own.

Perhaps someone out there can make that feature request and sponsor its
development at SchedMD. I feel like it would be a generally useful feature.

This should probably be a FAQ :-)  The sreport utility can't provide
accounting information for partitions :-(

Alternatively, I have written the accounting tools slurmacct and
topreports which are available from

While the output has a different format, we find this more useful than
sreport because the lines are sorted in the order of usage percentages.
