I have never run anything on a LSF system, so take my advice with 1
mmol of NaCl.

Duplicate lines in a --slf file are merged. It does no harm to have
the duplicate lines, but the duplicates are simply merged into 1.

It has been a while since I used blastp. Does it append to the file
given in '-out'? If not then you are overwriting it for every 24
sequences. Maybe you meant {#} instead?

-vv is really only useful for debugging: It is extremely hard to read
- even if you are the author of GNU Parallel.

I will highly recommend to use '-v' first and only resort to '-vv' if
'-v' shows what is expected.
