Is there a quick way to restart SAS (basically need to drop all active sessions, unload all data from LASR, and reload only the tables in HDFS), without doing the full restart cycle of all services?
SAS VA 7.3
Thnaks @Anand_V for the reply. I know that using the below command will restart the SAS platform. However I am a bit unsure if it will also restart the SAS LASR servers or I will have to do it manually. Is the below command sufficient to restart all the servers?
Unloading LASR data is simply a matter of stopping the LASR server. However loading a specified selection of tables will require a SAS program. How you stop and start the rest of your SAS services depends on your architecture. Is your SAS VA distributed or non-distributed and what OS do they run on?
Hello @SASKiwi ,
The SAS VA is distributed one on Linux system. Basically now what we are looking for is a way to automatically restart all the SAS services including LASR servers and also load the tables in LASR. Such a script will be run on adhoc basis. So now it is a bit of automation. Could you please suggest me how I should proceed for this automation? The data will be loaded into LASR from SAS datasets.
Quick search on SAS Communities show me that this topic has been addressed previously as well. You will have to automate LASR restart using SAS Code. You can also use Autoload Feature to reload tables. Reference below on the topic and solution shared for ref.
