Dear xtbu,
please sign your post with your name and affiliation. This is a rule of the forum.
You can do it once for all by filling your signature in the user panel.

You can find useful information about parallelisation for the BSE equation in Sec. 8.5 of this paper. ... 48X/ab15d0

In order to save memory, you can avoid setting by hand the BS_CPU and BS_ROLEs variable and use the variable

other options for this variable are "balanced" and "workload".
This variable appears in the input file by setting the verbosity option -V "par" in the command line to generate inputs e.g.
yambo -b -o b -k sex -y d -V par
