I was wondering whats your choice for a parallel sparse linear
solver? I have a beowulf cluster(~4 nodes, ok really small I
know) connected at 100Mbps. The computers are P4 2.2GHz with 1Gb
ram. The matrices are formed by a finite element program. They
are sparse, square, symmetric, and I would like to solve problems
with more than 200000 columns. Which of the solvers is easiest to
set up and utilize? One problem I am trying to solve is 156,240
x 156,240 with 6,023,241 non-zero entries.
Thanks for any help,
