SAS/CONNECT User's Guide, Version 8

This title contains essential information for using SAS software to provide client/server services. The client/server capabilities of SAS/CONNECT enable you to combine data and computational resources from two seemingly incompatible systems. SAS/CONNECT allows you access to files, hardware resources, and SAS software on various remote hosts to use with a SAS session the local host. Each SAS/CONNECT service is documented and contains information on product features and concepts, syntax information, and gives examples. This document explains how processing can take place asynchronous on a remote host as you continue processing on your local host. This processing can be performed on a periodic basis using the SAS/CONNECT agent scheduler. You also learn how to spread processing among remote resources. SAS/CONNECT allows application developers to design and develop application that communicate directly or indirectly using message queues. Both system administrators and experienced SAS programmers will find this information useful.
