Run Status


Run Status icon in the SAS Data Loader window
Use the Run Status directive to view job runs. Each run is listed with its current execution status, start time, end time, and run time. The Status column value can be In Progress, Stopped, Failed, or Successful.

Using Run Status

In the SAS Data Loader directives page, click the Run Status directive. The Run Status page is displayed:
run status with action menu
By default, the Run Status page displays all of the directive jobs that have run in the past 30 days. The most recent runs appear at the top of the list. You can change the default of 30 days by selecting a new value from the Show drop-down list. Job listings are identified by the given name or by the generic name of the directive (for example, Transform Data.) Given names are created when you save a directive.
When you click Refresh, you receive updates for all running jobs, including any that were started or completed after you opened the Run Status page.
Clicking Clear All clears all of the reports from the Run Status page. Clearing reports permanently removes the reports from the vApp database.
Clicking a job and clicking the Action menu action menu icon enables the following actions:
opens the directive associated with the job.
View Profile Report
for successful Profile Data jobs, enables you to view the Profile Report unless the report has been deleted from the Saved Profiles directive. See Saved Profile Reports for more information about the profile report.
View Results
for completed transformations or queries, enables you to view a sample of the target table in the SAS Table Viewer.
displays the SAS log that is generated during the execution of the profile job.
displays the SAS code that is generated during the execution of the profile job.
starts a failed or successful job.
The job runs with the configuration that was specified when the directive was last saved. Any changes in the Configuration window More Icon Displays the Configuration Window. that were made after the job was saved are not applied. For example, if you save a directive, and then enable the Spark runtime target, the saved directive continues to use its saved runtime target, such as MapReduce.
To apply new configuration settings to a saved directive, open the directive, change the settings, advanced options, and tasks as needed, and save the directive. The next time the directive runs, new code is generated using the latest configuration.
For directives that were created in release 2.3 or earlier, enabling support for Apache Spark or the Cloudera Impala require you to create a new directive, rather than upgrading the existing directive. For more information about Spark and Impala, see Enable Support for Impala and Spark.
stops an in-progress job.
If you select Stop, your directive continues to display its In Progress status. In this situation, the directive is stopping, but it has not yet reached a suitable stopping point. Click Refresh periodically until the status changes to Stopped or reopen Run Status later to confirm the Stopped status.
A directive typically consists of multiple tasks or steps. When stopping a job, it is often not possible to terminate the task currently in progress. In such cases, the stop is enforced when the current task completes. Any further tasks that are part of the directive are skipped.
clears a single report from the Run Status page. Clearing a report permanently removes the report from the vApp database.

About Unsaved Jobs

If you run a directive without saving it, the directive is displayed in Run Status like any other directive. When processing stops on the unsaved directive, you can select Open from its Action menu. You can then edit and save the unsaved directive.

About Incomplete Jobs

An incomplete job is one that you have stopped using the Action menu or one whose status is Failed. Depending on the type of the job and the point where execution ceased, log and code results might or might not be available.
