There is an updated pestat version 2.6 available from
ftp://ftp.fysik.dtu.dk/pub/Torque/pestat.

New features are:
* Force colors on or off for flagged nodes (-c/-n flags).
* Print only a given username or UNIX groupname (-u/-g flags).
* Print also down nodes (-d flag).

We find the UNIX group flag (-g) useful for monitoring the usage of subgroups
when they tend to have similar badly behaving jobs.

The pestat utility is used for printing a 1-line summary of jobs on each node.
It parses the output of "pbsnodes -a" and presents the output in a compact,
useful format.  In particular we use pestat all the time to display only those
nodes which have jobs that behave in an unexpected way, for example:

# pestat -f
