SAS® Metadata Server

The SAS Metadata Server provides a set of common repositories for storing metadata required by various SAS solutions. The SAS Metadata Server retrieves metadata from one or more repositories as multiple SAS solutions request it. Therefore, performance is a critical issue. To this end, the SAS Metadata Server makes use of threads to enable the best response time for serving metadata to any number of clients making requests. The resource allocation of the SAS Metadata Server is controlled through a configuration file.
