Get a list of running SAS jobs, and user who is running it?

Hi all,

I'm looking for a way to get a list of currently-running SAS jobs, and the user who ran it.  Sort of an equivalent for ps -ef for finding all the running processes on Unix.

I'd like to do this so that I could sample who is using SAS at regular intervals, and build a profile of usage of SAS in my organization.

Is there a good way to do this, or are there other tools to help me understand usage of a given SAS deployment across the organization?

Thanks,

Andrew Brown

For auditing purposes use audit tools. The complete one is on the OS level.  A start cab be made wit sas using the apm tools. Look at SIEM concepts for generic background.

Sas is an application for the os level it is a mistake trying to overrule that although I see Carry persons thinking that way.

Please specify your logical question more detailed.

I am assuming operational or regulations as original trigger.

I use the following command to get a list of currently running SAS processes.

1) top -p $(pgrep -d',' sas) or

2) This command helps when Linux complains about too many search results when you use above mentioned command "  top -p $(pgrep sas | head -20 | tr "\\n" "," | sed 's/,$//')  "

Not sure if is this what you are looking for.
