Added Object Spawner Command Option for Load-balancing Peer
without a Peer Refresh
A new Object Spawner
command option (-lbaddtocluster) enables you to add a new host to
an existing load balancing peer object without requiring a peer refresh.
This feature is required for cloud computing and software as a service
Enhanced Support for Running SAS Code at Server Session Boundaries
In addition to the stored
process server, the workspace server and pooled workspace server now
support running SAS code at server session start up and shutdown. For more information,
see Run SAS Code at Server Session Boundaries.
Enhanced Support for Running SAS Code at Server Boundaries
In SAS 9.3, the IOM
servers also support running SAS code at server start up and shutdown. For more information,
see INITSTMT= System Option in SAS System Options: Reference and TERMSTMT= System Option in SAS System Options: Reference.
Added Single Sign-on Support, Based on Kerberos, for UNIX
Single sign-on support
based on Kerberos has been added for SAS servers running on UNIX. For more information,
see SSPI System Option.
Added Object Spawner Support for FIPS
The object spawner supports
the Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) compliance mode
that is provided by SAS/SECURE software in its implementation of
the FIPS 140-2 specification. For more information,
Changed Server Credentials for Load Balancing
Server load balancing
generates its own credentials internally in SAS 9.3. Logical server
credentials are no longer needed. For more information,
see Understanding Server Load Balancing.
Added Support for Grid Algorithm
The load-balancing grid
algorithm is now supported for the OLAP, stored process, and pooled
workspace servers. For more information, see Choose a Load-Balancing Algorithm.
Changed Object Spawner Refresh
In SAS 9.3, when you
refresh the object spawner, the spawner now quiesces any servers that
it has started. The servers shut down when their clients have completed
their work. For more information, see Refresh the Object Spawner.
Added New SAS Procedure: PROC IOMOPERATE
There is a new SAS 9.3
procedure, PROC IOMOPERATE. It administers SAS servers that support
the SAS IOM infrastructure. For more information IOMOPERATE Procedure.
