SORTDEV like option

Does anyone know any alternative to SORTDEV option to work with SAS sort?

I am interested in spreading my I/O, especially for the temp spaces. I have distributed WORK & UTL but need suggestion how to re-direct SORT. When we used HOST SORT, it was easy to direct sort temp spaces using -sortdev option.

However, I do not think this option works with SAS SORT. Granted threading could be enabled along with CPUCOUNT, etc. however, in a large multi-user shared environment, I rather control and spread my temp spaces.

Long winded, my apologies! Any suggestion(s)?

Re: SORTDEV like option

System configuration questions are far too specific for this forum and will vary widely for the readers of the forum.

You need to work with Tech Support on this one.

Kind regards
