SAS sort performance considerations are operating system (OS) and
hardware-specific, as well as data.
It would be worthwhile to consider acquiring Mike Raithel's latest
books (title phrases include: ...SAS Indexes and Tuning SAS
Applications...) on SAS performance, if you are serious about learning
more on the topic for optimization. A Google search on the author's
last name will get you more details.
Also, there are some SAS.COM support website links on the topic.
Also, consider checking this discussion group archives.
