Step 2: Design a Validation Plan and Create Benchmarks

Benchmarking your source installation is an initial step for many validation and performance tests.

Creating Benchmarks for Validation

The Planning stage's Validation topics provide information about three new SAS validation tools that do not require benchmarks. If they do not meet your needs, the Designing Custom Validation Tests topic guides you through design of benchmarks and validation. Now is the time to set those benchmarks, before you begin installation.

Creating Benchmarks for Performance Optimization

If performance is important to you, then you can establish source benchmarks and compare them to the target's performance. See the tuning topic for ideas.
