Pbs_snapshot --basic to capture minimal useful data

Hi,

I’m proposing a new option to pbs_snapshot to quickly capture basic configurational/state data, as the full pbs_snapshot can take a long time depending on the site. This can be paired with other options like --accounting-logs or --daemon-logs in case users wanted to capture logs + basic configuration.

Please provide feedback, thanks.

I think this idea is good, but I don’t like the name. You are collecting more than just config data. You are getting the jobs as well. How about --slim or something like that (I don’t like that name either). Instead of being overly paranoid like we usually are, we are just gathering the necessary subset to get an idea of what is going on.

Thanks for your inputs @bhroam, how about --basic ?

I like --basic.
