it would be great if you could tell us where the time is spent. 30
minutes sounds WAY too long.
We had noticed a regression inside the
TrilinosWrappers::BlockSparseMatrix::reinit() call a while ago, that
we never fixed. You might want to put timing around that call.
Let me know what you find!

This appears to be a function of the number of nodes rather than model size, and becomes quite significant for large scale runs. When using 16 nodes (256 cores) initialization takes 30 minutes - extrapolating from the trend it appears using 10,000 cores would require a day to initialize. Before I delve into the reasons for this, has anyone encountered this and know why it is taking so long?
