The HPIMPUTE Procedure


PROC HPIMPUTE provides a vehicle for the parallel execution of imputation. The following list summarizes the basic features of PROC HPIMPUTE:

  • provides the ability to execute imputation

  • manages data migration to the location of execution and movement back to the client machine as needed

Because the HPIMPUTE procedure is a high-performance analytical procedure, it also does the following:

  • enables you to run in distributed mode on a cluster of machines that distribute the data and the computations

  • enables you to run in single-machine mode on the server where SAS is installed

  • exploits all the available cores and concurrent threads, regardless of execution mode
