Shared Concepts and Topics


This chapter describes the modes of execution in which SAS high-performance analytical procedures can execute. If you have Base SAS installed, you can run any procedure in this book on a single machine. However, to run procedures in this book in distributed mode, you must also have SAS High-Performance Server Distributed Mode software installed. For more information about these modes, see the next section.

This chapter provides details of how you can control the modes of execution and includes the syntax for the PERFORMANCE statement, which is common to all high-performance analytical procedures.
