# KSPGetTotalIterations

Gets the total number of iterations this KSP object has performed since was created, counted over all linear solves
### Synopsis

#include "petscksp.h"
PetscErrorCode KSPGetTotalIterations(KSP ksp,PetscInt *its)

Not Collective

### Input Parameters

**ksp ** -the iterative context

### Output Parameters

**its ** -total number of iterations

### Notes

Use KSPGetIterationNumber() to get the count for the most recent solve only
If this is called within a linear solve (such as in a KSPMonitor routine) then it does not include iterations within that current solve
