System Requirements
SASĀ® Job Flow Scheduler 9.47


To keep pace with changes to third-party technologies, SAS has adopted a general policy of supporting one or more baseline major versions, subsequent minor updates, and subsequent major versions for each officially supported operating system. Only the supported baseline major versions are listed in this document. The full SAS Support policy governing third-party software can be found at

As part of this policy, SAS strongly encourages customers to install the latest operating-system service packs.

Server-Tier Requirements

SAS Job Flow Scheduler Server

Select a platform:

SAS Job Flow Scheduler Server requires Base SAS which is not included but licensed separately.
SAS Metadata Server is required to be included on this site unless another SAS product offering is also licensed that includes Metadata Server on a separate site.



SAS Metadata Server

Select a platform:

SAS recommends that you deploy SAS Metadata Server on a 64-bit host system. The SAS Metadata Server is multi-threaded and multi-core server hardware (typically quad core or higher is recommended). A dedicated machine for the SAS Metadata Server is recommended to simplify tuning, management, and diagnostics, but is not required. The disk I/O performance of any server-class system should be sufficient. Memory requirements are highly dependent on the product mix and usage, but 8 GB of RAM are sufficient for most large deployments. For many deployments, 4 GB of RAM are sufficient and should be considered a minimum, unless the specific deployment is tested and verified to require less memory.

SAS Metadata Server can be deployed on the same machine as the SAS Grid Manager for Hadoop Control Server, or on a separate machine.
