Stratimikos Version of the Day
simple_stratimikos_example.cpp

Simple example program for how the Stratimikos::DefaultLinearSolverBuilder class is used to take a parameter list (e.g. read from a file) and use it so solve a linear system read in as Epetra objects from a file.

DETAILED DOCUMENTATION:

Simple example for the use of the Stratimikos facade Stratimikos::DefaultLinearSolverBuilder.

To print out just the valid options use --matrix-file="" --only-print-options with --print-xml-format or --print-readable-format.

To solve a linear system from a system read from a file use --matrix-file="SomeFile.mtx" with options read from an XML file using --linear-solver-params-file="SomeFile.xml"


Example input XML file

Here is an example input XML file, called amesos.klu.xml, that specifies that the KLU solver from Amesos be used to solve the linear system:

<ParameterList>
  <Parameter isUsed="true" name="Linear Solver Type" type="string" value="Amesos"/>
  <ParameterList name="Linear Solver Types">
    <ParameterList name="Amesos">
      <ParameterList name="Amesos Settings"/>
      <Parameter name="Solver Type" type="string" value="Klu"/>
    </ParameterList>
  </ParameterList>
  <Parameter name="Preconditioner Type" type="string" value="None"/>
</ParameterList>

Example program output

Sample output looks like when using the above amesos.klu.xml file as input with a test system:

Teuchos::GlobalMPISession::GlobalMPISession(): started serial run

Echoing the command-line:
