dgord - compute sparse matrix orderings of graphs in parallel
dgord [options] [gfile] [ofile] [lfile]
The dgord program computes, in a parallel way, an ordering of a
Scotch source graph representing the pattern of some symmetric
Source graph file gfile is either a centralized graph file, or a set
of files representing fragments of a distributed graph. The resulting
ordering is stored in file ofile. Eventual logging information (such
as the one produced by option -v) is sent to file lfile. When file
names are not specified, data is read from standard input and
written to standard output. Standard streams can also be explicitely
represented by a dash '-'.
When the proper libraries have been included at compile time, dgord
can directly handle compressed graphs, both as input and output. A
stream is treated as compressed whenever its name is postfixed with
a compressed file extension, such as in 'brol.grf.bz2' or '-.gz'. The
compression formats which can be supported are the bzip2 format
('.bz2'), the gzip format ('.gz'), and the lzma format ('.lzma', on
dgord bases on implementations of the MPI interface to spread work
across the processing elements. It is therefore not likely to be run
directly, but instead through some launcher command such as mpirun.
Choose default ordering strategy according to one or
several options among:
enforce load balance as much as possible.
privilege quality over speed (default).
privilege speed over quality.
Display some help.
Save column block mapping data to file mfile. Mapping
data specifies, for each vertex, the index of the column
block to which this vertex belongs.
Use parallel graph ordering strategy strat (see
PT-Scotch user's manual for more information).
Set root process for centralized files (default is 0).
Save partitioning tree data to file tfile. Partitioning
tree data specifies, for each vertex, the index of the
first vertex of the parent block of the block to which
the vertex belongs. Altogether with the mapping data
provided in file mfile, it allows one to rebuild the
separator tree of the nested dissection process.

Run dgord on 5 processing elements to reorder matrix graph brol.grf
and save the resulting ordering to file brol.ord, using the default
sequential graph ordering strategy:
$ mpirun -np 5 dgord brol.grf brol.ord
Run dgord on 5 processing elements to reorder the distributed matrix
stored on graph fragment files brol5-0.dgr to brol5-4.dgr, and save
the resulting ordering to file brol.ord (see dgscat(1) for an
explanation of the '%p' and '%r' sequences in names of distributed
