job stats

As jobs running in the queue system on Mills complete, all available information pertaining to their execution is logged to the Open Grid Scheduler accounting file. Any user can query that information using the qacct command line utility.

In late 2013, IT began accumulating that accounting data in a relational database, which provides for far richer queries. That database is now being used to produce interesting (perhaps even useful) visual reports on the workload running through Mills.
