Subject: Re: [Libmesh-users] pre-partitioning a big mesh



splitter also has the ability to do M->N parittioning. What this means is
that splitter itself can be run using MPI... and can generate partitions
for any number of processors. In fact, you can give it a list of n_procs
you want it partition for and it will do all of them simultaneously.

If you have one handy I highly recommend running splitter on a cluster that
has a good parallel filesystem.

BTW: I've used splitter to split huge multi GB Exodus files up into ~20,000
or so partitions and it's been pretty solid.
