Syncsort PROCSort™

Syncsort MFX customers use Syncsort PROCSort to drive significant additional resource and cost savings for SAS® sorting.

The impact of sort on SAS processing

Mainframe sort processing in SAS® applications typically consumes as much as 30% of all SAS CPU time and drives higher SAS elapsed times. Even organizations that enjoy the unprecedented speed, efficiency and ease-of-use delivered by Syncsort MFX™ face increased costs, and risk failure to meet batch window requirements and service level agreements (SLAs), due to SAS sorting.

Optimize SAS sort processing and reduce costs with Syncsort PROCSort

For more than 20 years, Syncsort MFX customers have added Syncsort PROCSort to overcome the resource drain caused by SAS sorting.  Syncsort PROCSort is a high-performance, transparent replacement for the SAS-provided sort procedure PROCSort. Benchmark tests with Syncsort MFX users show significant performance advantages when using this solution instead of SAS PROCSort, including an
additional 40% reduction in task CPU time and 25% lower elapsed time.
