Hi Matthieu

I think it's fair to say that if "batch system XYZ" is supported, then
in a job script submitted to that batch system you can issue an mpirun
command without manually specifying numbers of processes, hostnames,
launch protocols, etc. They're all picked up using the mechanisms of
the batch system.

If LSF has any peculiarities, someone will point them out, I'm sure.

Configuring for LSF I can't help you with.
