Michael Raithel's "Tuning SAS Applications in MVS" has a chapter worth reading on indexes, it covers much of what has already been mentioned here. I'd reiterate exploring alternatives to sorting/indexing. SAS SQL, notsorted options on grouped data, and class statements all perform well in certain conditions.
