1) For any question about convergence, we need to see the output of

  -ksp_view_pre -ksp_view -ksp_monitor_true_residual -ksp_converged_reason

2) Hypre has many preconditioners, which one are you talking about

3) PETSc has some preconditioners in common with Hypre, like AMG

What most experimenters take for granted before they begin their
experiments is infinitely more interesting than any results to which their
experiments lead.
