ParMETIS - Parallel Graph Partitioning and Fill-reducing Matrix Ordering

The distribution of ParMETIS contains a number of files. It is written entirely in ANSI C and MPI and is portable on most parallel computers that support MPI.

Getting the files
ParMETIS's distribution is available as a Unix gziped tar file.
Available files for download
Latest stable release (4.0.3, 3/30/2013):

Older versions of ParMETIS can be found here.

After downloading ParMETIS you need to uncompress it and untar it. You can achieve this by executing the following commands:
gunzip parmetis-4.x.y.tar.gz

tar -xvf parmetis-4.x.y.tar

At this point you should have a directory named parmetis-4.x.y. This directory contains ParMETIS's source code as well as a sample graph used for testing. To build ParMETIS, follow the instructions in the file parmetis-4.x.y/Install.txt.

ParMETIS's manual that contains instructions on how to use ParMETIS can be found in the directory parmetis-4.x.y/manual.

You can get a PDF copy of the manual from here.
