Report Typos and Errors


Begins the block of code that will count the number of nonzeros per row in a matrix providing the data that one can use to correctly preallocate the matrix.


PetscErrorCode MatPreallocateInitialize(MPI_Comm comm, PetscInt nrows, PetscInt ncols, PetscInt *dnz, PetscInt *onz)
Collective on MPI_Comm

Input Parameters

comm - the communicator that will share the eventually allocated matrix
nrows - the number of LOCAL rows in the matrix
ncols - the number of LOCAL columns in the matrix

Output Parameters

dnz - the array that will be passed to the matrix preallocation routines
ozn - the other array passed to the matrix preallocation routines


See Users-Manual: Chapter 14 Hints for Performance Tuning for more details.

Do not malloc or free dnz and onz, that is handled internally by these routines

Use MatPreallocateInitializeSymmetric() for symmetric matrices (MPISBAIJ matrices)

This is a MACRO not a function because it has a leading { that is closed by PetscPreallocateFinalize().
