|Managing Metadata Server Performance|
The SAS Metadata Server supports two approaches for quickly recovering memory on a running server:
Issue a Pause action followed by a Resume action. The Pause action instructs the SAS Metadata Server to stop accepting new client requests and closes the repository containers. The Resume action resumes client activity. Repository containers are re-opened as clients request metadata from them.
Issue a Reset action. The Reset action pauses and resumes the metadata server in one step.
Pause, Resume, and Reset actions can be issued in SAS Management Console. See Use SAS Management Console to Stop, Pause, Resume, or Reset the SAS Metadata Server. Pause and Resume actions can also be issued by using PROC METAOPERATE. See SAS Language Interfaces to Metadata.
