Thanks for the replies,

I'll run the program with -log_info, but that'll take a while.
However, i suspect that it is MPI related, because, even though my program is 
pretty much static in terms of size it is being shuffled around in terms of 
process distribution. So, this problem only occurs in parallel. However, it 
seems to start out fine, but then slows down in the parallel communication 

Also, PETSC is not the base package i use. I interface to it, so i am not sure 
that PETSC is necessarily the problem. 

anyway, i'll see if the log file gives me anything.
