PROC SQL WINDOWS vs zOS - PARM DEGREE=ANY

I'm new as an Admin and I'm trying to assist our programming staff as they convert SAS running on z/OS to Windows using PROC SQL.  The backed DBMS is DB2 still running on z/OS. 

 

z/OS - SAS 9.4   Windows 9.4.01

 

Where would I look for info on a PROC SQL parm  DEGREE=ANY and how to convert it? 

 

On z/OS PROC SQL uses this parm apparently to great advantage (decreased elapsed time) vs Windows where so far we cant find an equivalent.  Since the SQL query is still running on z/OS DB2 we're still preplexed as to why Windows SAS wont accept the parm. 

 

Any help would be appreciated.  Thx.

   PROC SQL;                                    
    CONNECT TO DB2 (SSID=DSNP DEGREE=ANY);

Re: PROC SQL WINDOWS vs zOS - PARM DEGREE=ANY

Addtl.

 

Based on some research PROC SQL appears to use these options to run multiple processes for a task:

SAS PROC Guide - Threaded Processing Using PROC SQL  pg 218

  1. Options that exist for parallelism.
    1. DBSLICEPARM
    2. THREADS
    3. CPUCOUNT

 

It also appears the DEGREE=ANY within z/OS DB2 provides the same benefit.  So a better question might be what options need to be set or turned on in z/OS SAS to enable SQL parallelism from a Windows SAS server workload ?

Re: PROC SQL WINDOWS vs zOS - PARM DEGREE=ANY

Your program doesn't show an attempt to use the degree option. Like you, I assume that this option is related to the data source, not the host where SAS executes. Perhaps you cod share a log and potentially require a clarification from SAS tech support.

The other options you mention related to SAS processing (as opposed to DB2). Perhaps I misinterpreted you but in the new setup you have no SAS in ZOS...?
