Is there a chance that condor_watch_q will be backported to the 8.8 branch?
I'm in the process of migrating from torque to HTCondor and I'm missing a tool like that to get overall status of system load.
Today I'm using an homemade script that displays other the number of jobs, also how many cores and memory are requested by the jobs:
It doesn't show all the information your current script shows,
but you may also want to consider
which is a quick way to get running/idle/held job counts per submitter.
