pc configuration for client server sas

I'm running the enterprise guide client on a pc to a unix server.

I've noticed some performance issues. The PC laptop is running XP with only 2 Gigs of ram. When I ask the admin about performance the reply I get is that all processing takes place on the server. However, I notice a fair amount of CPU load on my laptop when running my projects.

Can anyone point me to documentation on the configuration of a pc in this environment?

Re: pc configuration for client server sas

It's true that all compute processing takes place on the server. However, if you reference local data sources (SAS data sets, Excel files, etc), these must be read and moved to the server for processing, and that can consume resources on your PC.

I'd suggest working with SAS Technical Support to diagnose the situation. They will probably ask for a sample project and log that shows the symptoms you're seeing, and might be able to advise how to optimize it.
