This is a utility for computing the CPU and memory efficiency of jobs running under Slurm.
The CPU efficiency is computed by comparing the job's actual CPU time to its actual walltime
multiplied by its number of cores. The memory efficiency is computed by comparing the actual
maximum amount of memory used by the job to the amount of memory requested.
The RPM also includes the smail utility, which is an alternate Slurm mailer that includes
seff output in the end-of-job notification emails. Requires MailProg directive in slurm.conf.
