Hi Will,

I don't, currently, although it's on my list.

However, we had a presentation on a recent Oxford HPC-SIG meeting from a 
colleague, who implemented a simple job profiler that saves a lot of job 
data (including efficiency) & creates plots of the efficiency of the job 
run (in a nutshell). We all thought it sounded interesting :)

Code is here: https://github.com/OxfordCBRG/sps

(it's a spank plugin I believe)
