Hi,

 

I am wondering if it is possible to write SAS Code to query the size of the table cache instead of manually clicking on the tables in the VA Administrator LASR Table tab? If yes kindly please share the code. We are on 7.1 version of SAS VA.

 

Thanks

 

Nelson

Hi,

 

I tried the code example but it is complaining _T_LASRMEMORY and _T_TABLEMEMORY do not exist. Maybe the version of the LASR server in SAS VA 7.1 is pre LASR 2.5 version. Is there a way to find out the version of the LASR for VA 7.1?

 

THanks,

 

Nelson

I cannot answer that question sorry. Maybe this is avalable only on the updated version of LASR and SAS VA.

Its works fine for me on VA 7.1

Thinks Juan for the tip.

You are welcome Peter, glad to know you have it working. Thanks!

 

@yapne, maybe you will need to review your implementation, or check if you need to install hotfixes.

 

If none of those work for you, I would suggest to contact SAS Technical Support.

Thanks. I have tried your code and it didn't work either. I suspected it is because we are running on a distributed server mode?

He Nelson,

While reading the web item, its shows that the distributed script is a little different.

I will check out soon with a friend who has a distributed version, I will test it there.

 

Greetings and good luck

Hi Peter

Did you manage to check and test?

THanks

If I am not mistaken the code for both a distributed and a non-distributed server is the same. 

 

The only difference is in the results. For a distributed you get a record per distributed node. If you group these records as suggested in the documentation you will get the total memory usage. I am using this code now on my current project. As Juan stated this is a very interesting topic, especially when you start digging into data stored in HDFS and mapped to LASR. Some cool stuff here.
