MATSOLVERPASTIX

A solver package providing direct solvers (LU) for distributed and sequential matrices via the external package PaStiX. Use ./configure --download-pastix --download-ptscotch to have PETSc installed with PasTiX

Use -pc_type lu -pc_factor_mat_solver_type pastix to use this direct solver

Options Database Keys

-mat_pastix_verbose <0,1,2> - print level
-mat_pastix_threadnbr <integer> - Set the thread number by MPI task.

Notes: This only works for matrices with symmetric nonzero structure, if you pass it a matrix with nonsymmetric structure PasTiX and hence PETSc return with an error.
