Problem Note 44729: FULLSTIMER statistics for Memory usage are not correct when using SAS® Enterprise Guide to connect to a UNIX server
When the FULLSTIMER system option is set, the SAS log shows detailed
statistics, including memory usage, for each DATA or PROC step.
These statistics are correct for processes run directly on a UNIX server.

Enterprise Guide, the memory usage statistics written to the SAS log file are not correct.
Instead of reporting the memory usage for each step, the value for Memory
is erroneously reported as a cumulative value.
