General usage information

ParMetis is a MPI-based parallelized version of the Metis library which implements a variety of algorithms for partitioning unstructured graphs, finite element meshes and for computing fill-reducing orderings of sparse matrices.

This is the MPI/distributed-memory parallelized version of Metis, which can avail itself of multiple cores on multiple nodes.

See metis for the sequential verison.

See mt-metis for the multithreaded/shared-memory parallelized verison.

The following environmental variables have been defined:

  • \$PARMETIS_ROOT has been set to the root of the parmetis installation
  • \$PARMETIS_LIBDIR points to the directory containing the libraries
  • \$PARMETIS_INCDIR points to the directory containing the header files

You will probably wish to use these by adding the following flags to your compilation command (e.g. to CFLAGS in your Makefile):

  • -I\$PARMETIS_INCDIR
and the following flags to your link command (e.g. LDFLAGS in your Makefile):
  • -L\$PARMETIS_LIBDIR -Wl,-rpath,\$PARMETIS_LIBDIR
