KSPPIPECR

Pipelined conjugate residual method This method has only a single non-blocking reduction per iteration, compared to 2 blocking for standard CR. The non-blocking reduction is overlapped by the matrix-vector product, but not the preconditioner application.

See also KSPPIPECG, where the reduction is only overlapped with the matrix-vector product.

Notes

MPI configuration may be necessary for reductions to make asynchronous progress, which is important for performance of pipelined methods. See the FAQ on the PETSc website for details.
