Indicates the termination of the application.
Category: ARM Performance Macro
Restriction: SAS 9.3 and later




There are no input parameters for the %PERFEND macro.
Use the %PERFEND macro to terminate an application or user event. Each %PERFEND macro is paired with one %PERFINIT macro to mark the end of an application. The %PERFEND means that the application does not issue any more ARM calls. ARM calls issued after an application has been terminated with the %PERFEND macro result in an error. All transaction class identifiers are cleared and are no longer available after the %PERFEND macro. For an example, see ARM Performance Macros.
Note: If the %PERFEND macro is not set, the ARM application terminates at the end of the SAS session and you receive a warning.
