Subject: Re: MVS CPU time during DATA step
You can use the FULLSTATS and FULLSTIMER system options to obtain information
about CPU and other resource utilization for each "task" (ie, Procedure or Data
Step) in your program.
I don't think you can determine resource utilization for parts of a "task,"
such as a specific subsetting "IF" statement or a DO-group.
You may want to obtain, from SAS Institute, a copy of Mike Raithel's excellent
contribution to the Books By Users Program. "Tuning SAS Applications in the MVS
Environment" for information on ways to improve the efficiency of your SAS
programs running in the mainframe world.
