SAS/SHARE 9.1: User's Guide

Front Cover
SAS Institute, 2004 - Computers - 296 pages
Find everything you need to know about how to use and manage SAS/SHARE! SAS/SHARE is a multi-user data server that enables two or more clients to share the same SAS file at the same time. It is run in an environment in which multiple clients need to read from and write to records in the same SAS data set. With this title, you will learn how to use the transparent access that SAS/SHARE provides to remote data located in SAS files or in external files, regardless of the data representation of the SAS file. You will also learn how to combine and filter data to obtain the most efficient use of network and computing resources. New features described in this guide include the network security protocol Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), which encrypts data that is accessed between a client and a server; how a SAS/SHARE client that uses TCP/IP can identify a server by using a port number; and how a SAS/SHARE client can use an encoded password in any SAS/SHARE statement to identify the name of the node that the SAS/SHARE server runs on. Improved documentation about SAS system options that are relevant to SAS/SHARE, server log messages, and steps for creating the SAS/SHARE server environment under the UNIX and Windows operating environments is also included. This title is also available online.

Supports releases 9.1 and higher of SAS software.
