Subject: Optimizing SAS System Performance
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1
I am currently running a SAS program that is CPU intensive because
of the many simulations it does. I have run it on the following three
1) my desktop PC: 1 GHz, 512M RAM. Running time: 25 seconds.
2) SunW, ultra-5_10; sparc; sun4u: 400 MHz, 524M RAM. Running time: 1
min 30 seconds.
3) AlphaServer 800 5/333 VMS 7.1-2: 333 MHz, 1536M RAM. Running time:
For the Sun machine, I ran it directly on the box, so there was no
competing network traffic. For AlphaServer, I ran it when there was
no network traffic.
My question is, Is there a way to optimize my code for each system so
that the program runs at least as fast as it does on my desktop PC (25
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
