Statmark is developed specifically for SAS and is supported on most operating systems which SAS executes on. This includes OS such as Windows and UNIX. This provides a fair comparison for deciding on capital expenses on hardware and is an essential tool system tuning and optimizing system architect.
The benchmark can be produced in a user friendly report from either running a script or applying a few clicks with graphical user interface. This can be executed by any system administrator or end user.
Full System Testing
The benchmark consists of testing most of the functions and procedure call of the SAS System. It also includes a single threaded test to simulate a single user and a multi-threaded test representing performance of a group of users. The results are therefore representative of the system's functionality in real world applications.
