bootstrap insufficient memories

Hello,

I am running bootstrap simulations. My program works for few data when I make a test. But, when I perform the whole database, SAS keep running and after some time, he notice that memories is insufficient.

Can someone help me?

Run: proc options; run; and tell us what your MEMSIZE= option is.

Re: bootstrap insufficient memories

MEMSIZE=2147483648

Specifies the limit on the total amount of memory to be used by the SAS System

My problem is not to generate the bootstrap samples but with my main program running on the bootstrap samples.

Re: bootstrap insufficient memories

Bootstrap simulations would not typically run out of memory (unless you are using IML), but it could easily run out of disk space.  For instance, the old %bootsamp macro stores the intermediate data on disk and it can add up fast.

Can you post your bootstrap code.
