Convergence depends on distribution of eigenvalues you want to compute. On the other hand, the cost also depends on the time it takes to build the preconditioner. Use -log_view to see the cost of the different steps of the computation.

While solve A use 371 iterations and only 30.83s, solve B use 22 iterations and 38885s! What could be the reason for this? Or what can I do to find the reason?
