Prerequisites for running SAS Operational Qualification (SAS OQ) tests for SAS High-Performance Analytics:
  1. The appropriate client should be configured according to the instructions in the SAS High-Performance Analytics 12.1: Userís Guide.
  2. The distributed computing appliance should be configured according to the instructions in the SAS High-Performance Analytics 12.1: Userís Guide.
  3. Download and unzip the file HPAOQTEST.zip onto the client.
  4. Unzip and extract all the files into a directory that is visible to the SAS installation on the client.
  5. In the file hpainit.sas, configure the following parameters for your appliance-specific information:
    • %let GRIDHOST=<YOUR SITE-SPECIFIC APPLIANCE HOST HERE>;
    • %let GRIDINSTALLLOC=<YOUR SITE-SPECIFIC INSTALL DIRECTORY HERE>;
    • %let ENGINE=<YOUR SITE-SPECIFIC APPLIANCE: TERADATA or GREENPLM or SASHDAT>;
    • %let USER=<YOUR SITE-SPECIFIC DATABASE USER ID>;
    • %let PASSWORD=<YOUR SITE-SPECIFIC DATABASE PASSWORD>;
    • %let DATABASE=<YOUR SITE-SPECIFIC DATABASE NAME>;
    • Enter for GRIDDATASERVER only if using a Teradata appliance:
    • %let GRIDDATASERVER= <YOUR SITE-SPECIFIC TERADATA DATASERVER>;
    • Enter for SCHEMA only if using a Greenplum appliance:
    • %let SCHEMA=<YOUR SITE-SPECIFIC SCHEMA IF GREENPLUM APPLIANCE>;
  6. In the file hpasasoq.sas, configure the directory into which all the test files were extracted in step 4:
    • %let testdir=<site_specific_location_where_tests_have_been_saved>;
  7. Run the program hpasasoq.sas from a Display Manager System (DMS) screen or with a SAS command-line option.
