[petsc-users] [petsc-maint] Monolithic AMG with fieldsplit as smoother

  See the very end of the section https://petsc.org/release/manual/ksp/#multigrid-preconditioners on how to control the smoothers (and coarse grid solve) for multigrid in PETSc including for algebraic multigrid.

   So, for example, -mg_levels_pc_type fieldsplit would be the starting point. Depending on the block size of the matrices it may automatically do simple splits, you can control the details  of the fieldsplit preconditioner with -mg_levels_pc_fieldsplit_...  and the details for each split with -mg_levels_fieldsplit_.... 

   See src/ksp/ksp/tutorials/ex42.c for example, usage 

   Feel free to ask more specific questions once you get started.
