-snes_linesearch_atol - Absolute tolerance for iterative line searches
-snes_linesearch_ltol - Change in lambda tolerance for iterative line searches
-snes_linesearch_max_it - The number of iterations for iterative line searches
-snes_linesearch_monitor [:filename] - Print progress of line searches
-snes_linesearch_monitor_solution_update [viewer:filename:format] - view each update tried by line search routine
