Finding out memory available on a remote sign on

[ Edited ]

Hello,

 

My SAS is on a remote server that I remotely sign onto. I recently tried to run a proc means with a median option and my log informed me I had run out of memory. 

 

How exactly can I find out how much memory I have available to work with? Little worried it's not adequate...

 

Many thanks,

Declan

Or if you want to see all memory related option settings:

proc options group=memory;
run;

 

N.B: A value of zero means normally "as much as available" ....and how much is available will depend on the time you execute your process and what other processes you're competing with.
