Proc Cluster....processing time

I have a large data set ...about 230,000 observations each with 27 attributes (both categorical & numeric values) I tried to use proc cluster.

It takes forever (over 10 hours) it still hadn't finished....I ended up had to terminated it.

I know that the processing time must depend on many things. However, I wonder if it is normal to expect such a long processing time.

Thank you so much for all your help

I suggest first to check your log for error messages.

try again with just 1000 obs[pre] option obs= 1000 ;[/pre]to check your syntax
scale up the count if results arrive in realistic time.
I expect a lot of sorting is going on, and that needs disk space. Have you enough free?
