In this paper, we analyze the overheads associated with these two aspects (noncontiguous data layouts and nonuniform communication volumes) in the context of the PETSc software toolkit over the MPI communication ... However, this places additional overhead on the underlying communication library by making the data layout noncontiguous in memory and communication volumes (data transferred to each process) nonuniform ...
