Getting all sas nodes work files

Hello friends,

i am using Linux redhat with SAS 9.4 + SAS EG with multiple nodes in grid environment,

 

we have temporary work area on each node we called "/workarea1" (exist on all nodes - not shared) my goal is getting list of all work directories (sas_work.... or sas_util...) at specific time from all sas node at once.

 

when i use below code, it only generating files from one specific node only (where it is being executing) - in EG is there any way to get all temporary work directories from all nodes?

 

filename ind pipe "dir /workarea1";

data file_list;

length fname $200;

infile ind truncover;

input fname $200.;

run;

 

appreciate your comment,

Woo,

 

If you have terminal access to your GRID, you could configure passwordless ssh for your user between each of your nodes. You'll then get the collective output via something like this:

 

filename ind pipe "for tgt in gridnode1 gridnode2 gridnode3; do ssh $tgt 'dir /workarea1'; done";
data file_list;
  length fname $200;
  infile ind truncover;
  input fname $200.;
run;

Thanks boemskats for your comment, I never configured "passwordless ssh" before but if this is something affecting any existing security - I wouldn't do it...just staying in compliance Smiley Happy - I that case then running job on individual node would make sense...
