Task: I want to copy all SAS datasets/files/catelog from one library/view to another library.
PROC COPY IN=OLD OUT=NEW;
The performance is extremely slow if source is XML view. CPU usage is fine, around 30-40%, but memory usage up to 2.4G, and SAS prompts error message and shut down system. I had to stop it, and used DATA STEP instead.
Question: why? how to solve it or not use PROC COPY in XML view at all?
This really is a question for Tech Support, as they can go directly to the XML engine support folks to determine whether this is something unique that you are experiencing with your particular data or not.
