Hi Shade

Ole Holm Nielsen wrote a simple little set of bash scripts
[pbsacct, pestat] that parse and extract information from the accounting 
That may be a good starting point:


What I like most about them is that it is easy to tweak
with the scripts to show the information you need,
formatted the way you want.

For a visual snapshot of cluster use, I like Fotis Georgatos'
'qtop', which is also just a set of shell scripts built
on top of Torque's qstat command, and displays the
cluster occupancy in ASCII art:


Both tools are simple, no-frills, text based, customizable,
but effective, IMHO.

I hope this helps.
