NOCACHE;

When I generated a graph in EG the generated code included:
[pre]
PROC GPLOT DATA=WORK.SORTTempTableSorted
NOCACHE ;
PLOT Kernel_Resident_Memory * timestamp kp * timestamp kpf * timestamp Total_Memory * timestamp /
OVERLAY
AREAS=4
FRAME VAXIS=AXIS1

HAXIS=AXIS2

LEGEND=LEGEND1
;
[/pre]

I have never seen the NOCACHE option before and I don't find it in the documentation either. I'm going to do some googling, but perhaps someone here knows what this is and can enlighten us.

Re: NOCACHE;

Hi:
It seems to be related to the client side graphics drivers:
from here:
http://support.sas.com/techsup/technote/ts601.html

"BY Statement
In order to use the BY statement with the GPLOT procedure, you must specify the NOCACHE option on the PROC GPLOT statement. This problem is referenced in usage note SN-001472. This problem has been corrected in Release 8.1 of SAS/GRAPH. "


I found this by going to support.sas.com and typing
EG NOCACHE
in the search box.

Searching on just NOCACHE got these hits (among others):
http://support.sas.com/kb/1/472.html
http://support.sas.com/kb/1/350.html
http://support.sas.com/kb/00/623.html

It's probable that NOCACHE is put there automatically by EG-- whether it's needed anymore or not.

Re: NOCACHE;

Ok.

Thanks.

I found some of that googling, but I wanted some inside recent experienced confirmation/explanation/elaboration.

Thanks again Cynthia.
