The OPTLP Procedure


PERFORMANCE <performance-options> ;

The PERFORMANCE statement specifies performance-options for multithreaded (SMP) and distributed (MPP) computing, passes variables around the distributed computing environment, and requests detailed performance results of the OPTLP procedure.

With the PERFORMANCE statement, you can also control whether the OPTLP procedure executes in SMP or MPP mode. Only the decomposition algorithm, interior point algorithm, and concurrent LP algorithm can be run in SMP mode. Only the decomposition algorithm can be run in MPP mode.

The PERFORMANCE statement for multithreaded computing mode is documented in the section PERFORMANCE Statement in Chapter 4: Shared Concepts and Topics. The OPTLP procedure supports the deterministic and nondeterministic modes of the PARALLELMODE= option in the PERFORMANCE statement.

The PERFORMANCE statement for distributed computing mode is documented in Chapter 3: Shared Concepts and Topics in SAS High-Performance Analytics Server 12.1: User's Guide.

Note: Distributed computing mode requires SAS® High-Performance Analytics software.
