Subject: How to speed up a SAS process?
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii
When I deal with large datasets, say with 10 millions
of observations of 200 variables, and try to sort it,
sometimes it works reasonably fine (I used option
"tagsort"), sometime for the same datasets, it takes
forever to run and never finishes. I was sort of
puzzled since the CPU doesn't look busy at all and
somehow SAS just decided to take a break in this kind
Is something I could do in addition to get a better
computer? (I do have one with very large HD and 500 MB
Thanks for any advice.
