Hi, I`m kind of new and in my job someone did this code but now it doesn`t work and i have the following message:
Well, as it says, SAS ran out of memory!
There are a number of possibilities.
SAS has three memory size options, MAXMEMQUERY, MEMSIZE, and REALMEMSIZE. One of them may need to be adjusted. Unfortunately, that's a job that is generally done by someone with SAS experience. If you can find that person at your shop, ask them to give you a hand with changing these.
Also, do a search on your error message. I just did that, and a number of the hits discussed the nature of the model (I'm not experienced enough with OPTMODEL to have an opinion). Perhaps your request needs to be tweaked.
SAS has a wonderful Technical Support group. I typically wouldn't send someone with your problem to them, as I don't think it's a software issue, but because of your inexperience I think it might be necessary. Put in a track with them, and see what they say.
Make sure you post back with the solution so everyone else can learn from it!
I actually find out about the three memory size options and I have this:
Specifies a limit on the amount of memory that is available for data summarization procedures when class
variables are active.
For certain procedures, specifies the maximum amount of memory that can be allocated per request.
LOADMEMSIZE=0 Specifies a suggested amount of memory that is needed for executable programs loaded by SAS.
Specifies the limit on the amount of virtual memory that can be used during a SAS session.
Specifies the amount of real memory SAS can expect to allocate.
NOTE: PROCEDURE OPTIONS used (Total process time):
real time 0.01 seconds
cpu time 0.00 seconds
i don´t know if thats enough to run my process but if not who can actually help me or how can I contact the SAS Technical Support group.
Thanks a lot for your help 🙂
Go to support.sas.com, down a bit there's a button for "Technical Support". Click it. You've done 1 and 2, so click 3 "Contact Technical Support", and you'll be guided into a dialogue to get in touch with them. I suggest you follow the "Create a Track" stream, it's what I always do and it works well.
I've had excellent support from them for over 20 years. Good luck!
