SAS VA 7.1 Compession

Hi,

Could someone point me in the direction of an article that covers of the pros and cons of compressing data before loading it into memory please ?

I understand the benefits of compressing data but I would like to understand how the data is stored and managed in memory also what are benefits once it is in memory such as performance.

Cheers

Rae

Hi Rae,

You may want to take a look at the following thread that discusses compression in SAS Visual Analytics 7.1

Furthermore, there are many SAS papers and documents that outline the general pros and cons of compression you may want to look at. Some SAS documentation links to get you started are:

SAS(R) LASR(TM) Analytic Server 2.5: Reference Guide

SAS(R) 9.4 Intelligence Platform: Data Administration Guide, Third Edition

Kind Regards,

Michelle
