[petsc-users] RCM for ILU?

RCM did not help much for my case. This case represents some strong connectivities in channels. I am wondering if PETSc has some reordering algorithm or solver that is not based on connectivity graph, but is based on connectivity strength (such as percolation type of reordering). Any information is appreciated.

$ ./ex2 -pc_factor_mat_ordering_type rcm -help | grep -A1 mat_ordering
