SAS STUDIO REALLY VERY SLOW

Hi,

 

Is there a way to increase speed of SAS studio. Its really very slow on my windows computer. What checks do I need to do to resolve this issue?

 

Many thanks,

Re: SAS STUDIO REALLY VERY SLOW

Are you talking about SAS UE? I've found it quite quick for what it is intended. 

 

What is slow for you? What types of Procs are you running?

 

And what specs have you set for the VM? You can increase the RAM but not the # of cores. 

 

If this is referring to SAS Academics on Demand, your limited by your internet speed and the severs in NC.

I am using SAS UE. It takes a while SAS UE to load in my computer which is slow for me. I am using it to prepare for my certifications so my work is very basic. How do I increase the RAM for VM. I have done no settings for it and I dont know how to proceed with that.

Change the RAM assigned to something larger than the default but less than half your laptop RAM. 

 

Note that an older machine will be slower.

Re: SAS STUDIO REALLY VERY SLOW

How slow is "slow" and what size data sets and procedures?

 

Also what may be going on in the background? If you have something trying to update that can eat a lot of clock cycles (and for days it seems like sometimes).

How many other programs running concurrently? Streaming music or video?
