why are you using this in PBS?

Yes, this is the same number as you requested in "-pe mpich  #  
processors number" and you can use "mpirun -np #processors number" in  
your jobscript.

To have it generic you can use "mpirun -np $NSLOTS" in your jobscript.

In SGE the allocation of number of slots per node is in the PE  
definition. So maybe you need two PEs:

- one with "allocation_rule 1"

- one with "allocation_rule 2"

if youn want to have one or two processes per node for this job.  
Otherwise you can use $round_robin if you don't care.
