Hi, Just add some info about this, I have attempted to do so on SGE cluster.
I found that $NSLOTS works only for MPI jobs as it's part of the MPI integration in SGE. Other non MPI jobs won't work. For example: python parallel_groomer.py input output $NSLOTS, $NSLOTS won't be replaced by the SGE with the specified number.
