Where do I find the size of the datasets loaded to memory?
I now have more than 50 tables loaded in the LASR-server.
The Sizing Guideline for Single Machine have a guideline about
I can only find information about number of rows and columns.

In base SAS in SASHELP.VTABLE, find your table (where libname=library and dataset=memname), and it will show you FILESIZE variable, I assume its in bytes.

Just to specify.
It is the datasets loaded to memory in the LASR-server.
There are no physical files, therefore sashelp.vtable.filesize=0
proc datasets don't give me much information.

Because of the way data is loaded into a LASR server, it's difficult to say. For example, if source SAS data is loaded into HDFS, then into a LASR server, a LASR table only consumes memory while it is being used. If not, it consumes memory as long as it is loaded. Also for example, levelization increases memory consumption.
However, you can get a rough estimate of the size of (uncompressed) data using the SASIOLA libname engine and PROC DATASETS CONTENTS by multiplying the number of observations ("Observations") by the observation length ("Observation Length").
