Not collective

Input Parameter

dm -the DM object

Output Parameters

len - The number of subproblems in the field decomposition (or NULL if not requested)
namelist - The name for each field (or NULL if not requested)
islist - The global indices for each field (or NULL if not requested)
dmlist - The DMs for each field subproblem (or NULL, if not requested; if NULL is returned, no DMs are defined)


The user is responsible for freeing all requested arrays. In particular, every entry of names should be freed with PetscFree(), every entry of is should be destroyed with ISDestroy(), every entry of dm should be destroyed with DMDestroy(), and all of the arrays should be freed with PetscFree().
