```  Mark,

Thank you.  You do have aggressive optimizations: -O3 -march=native, which means out-of-order instructions may be performed thus, two runs may have different order of operations and possibly different round-off values.

You could try turning off all of this with -O0 for an experiment and see what happens. My guess is that you will see much smaller differences in the residuals.

The difference for one solve is slight (final SNES norm is identical to 5 digits), but in the context I'm using it in (repeated applications to solve a steady state multigrid problem, though here just one level) the differences add up such that I might reach global convergence in 35 iterations or 38. It's not the end of the world, but I was expecting that with -np 1 these would be identical and I'm not sure where the root cause would be.

Similar for the SNES iterations, starting close and then for more iterations and more solves they start moving apart. Or do they suddenly jump to be very different? You can run with -snes_monitor -ksp_monitor
