mesh ordering and partition

I am studying the parallel programming, using libmesh/petsc as an excellent
I have some questions about the partition and mesh ordering.
It seems libmesh does not reorder the mesh nodes. It only calls metis to
partition the mesh, and
uses original node order to build the matrix. I wonder if a bad mesh
ordering may cause low efficency
of ILU preconditioner. However, If I did RCM ordering to the mesh, the
node's order may conflict with
contiguous index set int the subdomain partitioned by metis. How should I
balance the ordering (to reduce filling)
and partition (to reduce communication)? any good ideas?
