Monitoring SAS Performence

Hi,

We have a SAS program which is taking 7 to 10mins for execution. It has around 1300 lines of code. Is there anyway I can log timestams to see which part is actualy taking too long?

Thanks in advance

You have different options. What is you OS? You can use FULLSTIMER a general suggestion and also, look up ARM monitoring form the online help. That allows you very specific and precise induction points.

You can also place (quick and dirty) start and elapsed time at different intervals in your logs (not good method). If you are on UNIX, depending which flavor you can use vendor provided tools, such as GLM (for HP), etc.

Have you turned off the Notes option?

The standard display gives you CPU and REAL time values for each step and will direct you immediately to the step(s) which is(are) taking too long.

Kind regards
