Key:  XXX:Unknown [*]:Down w/Job [#]:Down [']:Idle w/Job [ ]:Idle [@]:Busy w/No Job [!]:Drained
Key:  [a]:(Any lower case letter indicates an idle node that is assigned to a job)
 
Check Memory on Node fr3n07
Check Memory on Node fr4n06
Check Memory on Node fr4n09
Active Job[ 1]     fr15n09.1097.0 (Starting) Has Node fr7n09 Allocated which is in state 'Idle'
Active Job[ 1]     fr15n09.1097.0 (Starting) Has Node fr15n01 Allocated which is in state 'Idle'
Active Job[ 1]     fr15n09.1097.0 (Starting) Has Node fr15n03 Allocated which is in state 'Idle'
Active Job[ 1]     fr15n09.1097.0 (Starting) Has Node fr15n05 Allocated which is in state 'Idle'
Active Job[ 1]     fr15n09.1097.0 (Starting) Has Node fr15n07 Allocated which is in state 'Idle'
Node fr11n08 is Busy but Has No Job Scheduled

In this example, nine active jobs are running on the system. Each job listed in the top of the output is associated with a letter. For example, job fr17n11.942.0 is associated with the letter "A." This letter can now be used to determine where the job is currently running. By looking at the system "map," it can be found that job fr17n11.942.0 (job "A") is running on nodes fr2n10, fr2n13, fr2n16, fr3n06 ...

The key at the bottom of the system map can be used to determine unusual node states. For example, fr7n15 is currently in the state down.

After the key, a series of warning messages may be displayed indicating possible system problems. In this case, warning message indicate that there are memory problems on three nodes, fr3n07, fr4n06, and fr4n09. Also, warning messages indicate that job fr15n09.1097.0 is having difficulty starting. Node fr11n08 is in state BUSY but has no job assigned to it. (It possibly has a runaway job running on it.)
