monitor detected resources and periodically report resource metrics back to the server.
The server provides an interface for interacting with those agents. You can use it to
manage the data collected by the agents, distribute plug-ins, create alerts and escalation
procedures based on collected metrics, and graph the metrics provided through the
installed plug-ins.
SAS Environment Manager agents run on all SAS platforms except for z/OS. For more
information, see SAS Environment Manager: User's Guide, SAS Environment Manager
Administration: User's Guide, and the Help for SAS Environment Manager, which is
available from within the product.
SAS Forecast Studio
SAS Forecast Studio is the client component of SAS Forecast Server, which is an
example of the SAS analytics products that use the SAS Intelligence Platform. SAS
Forecast Server is a large-scale, automatic forecasting solution that enables organizations
to produce huge quantities of high-quality forecasts quickly and automatically. SAS
Forecast Studio provides a graphical interface (based on Java) to the forecasting and
time series analysis procedures contained in SAS High-Performance Forecasting and
SAS/ETS software.
SAS High-Performance Forecasting automatically selects the appropriate model for each
item being forecast, based on user-defined criteria. Holdout samples can be specified so
that models are selected not only by how well they fit past data but by how appropriate
they are for predicting the future. If the best forecasting model for each item is unknown
or the models are outdated, a maximum level of automation can be chosen in which all
three forecasting steps (model selection, parameter estimation, and forecast generation)
are performed. If suitable models have been determined, you can keep the current
models and reestimate the model parameters and generate forecasts. For maximum
processing speed, you can keep previously selected models and parameters and choose
to simply generate the forecasts.
For more information, see the SAS High-Performance Forecasting: User's Guide and the
SAS/ETS User's Guide.
SAS Information Delivery Portal
The SAS Information Delivery Portal enables you to aggregate data from a variety of
sources and present the data in a web browser. The web browser content might include
the output of SAS Stored Processes, links to web addresses, documents, syndicated
content from information providers, SAS Information Maps, SAS reports, and web
applications.
Using the portal, you can distribute different types of content and applications as
appropriate to internal users, external customers, vendors, and partners. You can use the
portal along with the Publishing Framework to publish content to SAS publication
channels or WebDAV repositories, to subscribe to publication channels, and to view
packages published to channels. The portal's personalization features enable users to
organize information about their desktops in a way that makes sense to them.
For more information, see the SAS Information Delivery Portal Help, which is available
from within the product. For information about administrative and development tasks
associated with the SAS Information Delivery Portal, see the SAS Intelligence Platform:
