@ShelleySessoms This sounds exciting!

Can you provide a little details about the environment for the live administration in the final email for the event? Thanks



1. Cloud Service Provider (CSP) running on? (Azure, AWS, etc.)

2. SAS9 running Windows, Unix or Linux? 

3. SAS Viya running Windows or Linux?

4. Administration (Provider or Tenant)? 

5. Can we get some performance tuning insights for the various components ( Apache http server, files service, JRE, JDBC Connection pools, LDAP Connection pools, Report data service, SAS Cache Server, SAS CAS, SAS Infrastructure, message broker). 

6. I'd ask for CSP perf tips but that's probably too much for this session.

Hi @Residentx10 . Let me ask the coordinator about this. Stay tuned.

Hi @Residentx10

The upcoming SAS Viya 3.5 administration workshop is going to be more of a presentation on SAS Viya 3.5 rather than a full demo done in a particular environment. If you do have questions during the workshop, you will be able to ask our presenters during the workshop!


Thank you!

@frgill Then rename  this "SAS Viya 3.5 Overview" okay?
