Are you talking about a script that is run via sbatch containing srun
command lines? If so, there are a lot of reasons to do that. One is
better instrumentation, as I understand it, but also srun --mpi is a way
to eliminate mpiexec/mpirun/etc., and is what we recommend at our site
instead (using the PMI2 or PMIx methods).
