HI, all
I am a newlearner of sas stored process server.My situation is :
1.There is one stored process server in one host;
2. I connect the server from different machine through IE;
3. If I connect the server at almost the same time, how many sessions in the stroed process server. If different client has different session , how can I get the sessionID. Can you give some document to learn about such issues.
4. when I investigated the sas document of stroed process ,there are reserved macro variables ,such as _SESSIONID, but this macro variable is created only if a session has been explicitly created. I do not want to create a new session ervery time .
5.When I use the macro variable in a sas stored process , the value of _RMTADDR is different during every time I connect the server through different IE.How can the server realize this?

Thanks in advance!

The answer to this question is very installation specific. For an overview of one company's experience with installing and configuring the Enterprise Intelligence Platform, this SAS Global Forum paper gives you a good idea of what your SAS Administrator had to know to set things up at your installation.

Generally, the person writing stored processes does not worry about how many sessions are available or how the servers are handling requests. This falls under the category of tasks taken care of by the SAS Administrator for an installation.

All of these questions fall under the general category of "Platform Administration" and the person who installed the Enterprise Intelligence Platform should have a set of manuals available that go over the WHOLE installation process, including setting up the stored process server and using sessions.

We have a set of classes under the Platform Administration category:

and a self-paced learning class (that I've heard takes about 13-15 hours to complete):

So as you can see, this is not a quick question. If you have an urgent or immediate need for help, you might consider contacting SAS Technical Support.

Hi, Cynthia,
Thanks a lot for your so quick response!

I have readed the log of the store process, I find that every time I connect the stored process server, the sas.portal.sessionid and the sas.stp.sessionid are different . But during every connection ,these two variable are unique. The every connection is every time I login from the same machine or different host.During once login, these two variable are unique.

Now , my question is how can I get the value of these two variables?

I can get the value of the macro variable, such as _RMTADDR .But these two variables are not the macro.

The log is listed below, and the sas.portal.sessionid and the sas.stp.sessionid have been marked by black fonts.

Thanks in advance!
