Real CPU Time for a whole process flow

Hi,

I am using SAS Enterprise Guide 4.1 (4.1.0.1020).

Is there a way to know the real cpu time used for a whole process flow?

Thank you.

Re: Real CPU Time for a whole process flow

The only way I can think of easily doing this is to export your whole process flow to a SAS program and then run it as a batch job. The SAS log file from the batch job will then have notes at the end of it saying how much CPU time in total was used. If you use the FULLSTIMER SAS option then you will get the job memory used as well.

I'm going to use the word "easy" on this one, but SAS has the ability to create ARM records, which can then be analyzed for a number of performance metrics, including CPU time. Here's a link to some documentation:
