it turned out that XGBoost (used in CaloTools) uses OpenMP to parallelize and that has a negative impact on HLT throughput (where we saturate the machine with multiple processes) and possibly on multithreaded jobs.
OMP_THREAD_LIMIT=1 forces OpenMP to work sequentially, giving us back control of the use of CPUs.
