Hi ,


We are using the SAS LSF we dont have Grid manager and also we are using sas 9.3

Oh, I assumed when you asked on which host the batch was running on, that you had a grid.

So then there's just one host chose from, or do I miss something...?

Once you found the SAS log the first thing I'd be looking into:

1. are there much higher data volumes than usually (i.e. after a bad data load into source)

2. bad data loaded resulting in many to many relationships where the code expects it to be 1:1 or 1:m

3. has anything structurally changed in the data source or data target

   - disabled, removed or changed index

   - change to a column (i.e. change from VARCHAR5 to VARCHAR4000)

   - additional columns and somewhere in the SAS code a SELECT *

   - ......


Comparing the real times between a "good" and the "bad" SAS log should tell you which step needs further investigation.


I'd probably also check if there had been any maintenance work going on (like a massive backup process on the target DBMS).
