PetscErrorCode  PetscSSEIsEnabled(MPI_Comm comm,PetscBool  *lflag,PetscBool  *gflag)
Collective on MPI_Comm

Input Parameter

comm -the MPI Communicator

Output Parameters

lflag -Local Flag: PETSC_TRUE if enabled in this process
gflag -Global Flag: PETSC_TRUE if enabled for all processes in comm


NULL can be specified for lflag or gflag if either of these values are not desired.

Options Database Keys

-disable_sse -Disable use of hand tuned Intel SSE implementations
