It will take a very long time

For a smaller problem, I've already checked its correctness using -snes_type test or -snes_compare_explicit (but linear solve and nonlinear solve with FD one need a few more iterations than with my Jacobian). To make it sure, now I started -snes_type test for the problem and will update you once it finished. By the way, I'm waiting the calculation for more than three hours now. Is it usual for a large problem (>1e6 dof) or is there something wrong?

> This means your Jacobian is wrong. Your first order of business is to fix your Jacobian. I noticed in previous emails your discussion with Jed about switching to MatGetLocalSubMatrix() and using -snes_type test YOU NEED TO DO THIS. You will get no where with an incorrect Jacobian. You need to fix your Jacobian before you do anything else! No amount of other options or methods will help you with a wrong Jacobian! Once you have a correct Jacobian if you still have convergence problems let us know and we can make further suggestions.
