What does the 'server type' in task status pane means?

I create a stored process from a program with following code:

data _null_;

set sashelp.cars;

run;

and set the server type to 'Workspace Server only' in execution option.

When I run the stored process, 'server type' in task status pane always shows 'Stored Process' but not 'Workspace' which I expect.

So what does this 'server type' exactly means?

Shen,

Yes, I'll bet that's correct.  Even if the Stored Process is running on a the Workspace Server instance, it wouldn't surprise me if the status shows "Stored Process" since that's the method being used...

This Server Type field provides you (the end user) with an idea of what type of SAS session is running your job.  The Workspace server is most common for typical connections, but as you noted the Stored Process server can be used for SAS stored processes.  Also, customers with a SAS Grid Computing environment might see "Grid" when their SAS jobs are running on a distributed grid node.

Thanks, Chris

That means, the Server Type field will always show stored process even if the excution option of the stored process was set to Workspace Server Only? (In an environment other than Grid Computing)
