The HPLMIXED Procedure

Distributed Computing

Distributed computing refers to the use of multiple autonomous computers that communicate through a secure network. Distributed computing solves computational problems by dividing them into many tasks, each of which is solved by one or more computers. Each computer in this distributed environment is referred to as a node.

You can specify the number of nodes to use with the NODES= option in the PERFORMANCE statement. Specify NODES=0 to force the execution to be done locally (often referred to as single-machine mode).
