Sparse matrix equilibration

Hi,

I'm working with a very non-equilibrated sparse linear system, which in MATLAB I treat with a function probably similar to dgeequ. Question: is there anything like this for MKL Sparse BLAS? Or something doing something similar dealing with preconditioners?

 

In case dgeequ or similar is not available, I have a second question: to implement dgeequ I need to find the minimum/maximum element of a row and/or column of a sparse matrix. Is it possible to do it in MKL working directly with the matrix handle? Otherwise, my best solution would be to export in the three-array format the matrix and work on the vectors...

 

Best Regards,

 

Alberto

Hi Alberto,

I will need to check with the MKL team and will let you know.

Hello Alberto,

Currently, we don't support such functionality in IE SpBLAS. So I think the easiest way to do it is to export data and work on raw pointers. You can submit a feature request for us to add the functionality like dgeequ. 

Khang, could you give an appropriate link to a place where feature requests are created for MKL?

Best,
Kirill

Hi Kirill,

Thank you for providing the answer to this question.

Hi Alberto,

Why don't you sent me an email at khang.t.nguyen@intel.com describing the requested feature in detail along with the OS, data types and data sizes preferences?

Best regards,

Khang
