You have a fundamental issue here, but first let me point out that there
is no reason why you have to run this code in Display Manager. Run it in
batch mode! Your log and output will go straight to a file!
Or at least use PROC PRINTTO to re-direct your log.

I am going to predict that you are running a large simulation or bootstrap.
And that you are running it in a huge, icky macro loop.
Is that what is really going on? I think that the *real* problem is
namely that you should re-design your process so it is not a vast macro
but instead uses SAS processing abilities to run faster, cleaner, easier,
