CData ODBC Driver for AWS Management を使って、SAS からリアルタイムレポートや分析を実施。

CData ODBC Driver for AWS Management を使って、SAS からAWS Management data データを連携利用。

SAS は、高度なアナリティクス、BI、データ管理、予測分析のためのソフトウェアです。SAS とCData ODBC Driver for AWS Management を合わせて使うことで、SAS からリアルタイムAWS Management data へのアクセスが可能になります。本記事では、SAS でAWS Management のライブラリを作成し、データベースのようにデータを扱い、レポートを作成します。

The CData ODBC Driver offers unmatched performance for interacting with live AWS Management data in SAS due to optimized data processing built into the driver. When you issue complex SQL queries from SAS to AWS Management, the driver pushes supported SQL operations, like filters and aggregations, directly to AWS Management and utilizes the embedded SQL engine to process unsupported operations (often SQL functions and JOIN operations) client-side. With built-in dynamic metadata querying, you can easily visualize and analyze AWS Management data in SAS.

Connect to AWS Management as an ODBC Data Source

Information for connecting to AWS Management follows, along with different instructions for configuring a DSN in Windows and Linux environments (the ODBC Driver for AWS Management must be installed on the machine hosting the SAS System).

To authorize AWSDataManagement requests, provide the credentials for an administrator account or for an IAM user with custom permissions:

  1. Set AccessKey to the access key Id.
  2. Set SecretKey to the secret access key.
  3. Set Region to the region where your AWSDataManagement data is hosted.

Note: Though you can connect as the AWS account administrator, it is recommended to use IAM user credentials to access AWS services.

When you configure the DSN, you may also want to set the Max Rows connection property. This will limit the number of rows returned, which is especially helpful for improving performance when designing reports and visualizations.

Windows

If you have not already, first specify connection properties in an ODBC DSN (data source name). This is the last step of the driver installation. You can use the Microsoft ODBC Data Source Administrator to create and configure ODBC DSNs.

Linux

If you are installing the CData ODBC Driver for AWS Management in a Linux environment, the driver installation predefines a system DSN. You can modify the DSN by editing the system data sources file (/etc/odbc.ini) and defining the required connection properties.

/etc/odbc.ini

[CData AWSDataManagement Sys] Driver = CData ODBC Driver for AWS Management Description = My Description AccessKey = myAccessKey Account = myAccountName Region = us-east-1

For specific information on using these configuration files, please refer to the help documentation (installed and found online).

Create a AWS Management Library in SAS

Connect to AWS Management in SAS by adding a library based on the CData ODBC Driver for AWS Management.

  1. Open SAS and expand Libraries in the Explorer pane.
  2. In the Active Libraries window, right-click and select New.
  3. Name your library (odbclib), select ODBC as the Engine, and click to Enable at startup (if you want the library to persist between sessions).
  4. Set Data Source to the DSN you previously configured and click OK.

Create a View from a AWS Management Query

SAS natively supports querying data either using a low-code, point-and-click Query tool or programmatically with PROC SQL and a custom SQL query. When you create a View in SAS, the defining query is executed each time the view is queried. This means that you always query live AWS Management data for reports, charts, and analytics.

Using the Query Tool

  1. In SAS, click Tools -> Query
  2. Select the table sources and the table(s) you wish to pull data from. Then, click OK.
  3. Select columns and right-click to add filtering, ordering, grouping, etc.
  4. Create a local view to contain the query results by right-clicking the SQL Query Tool window, selecting Show Query, and clicking Create View. Name the View and click OK.

Using PROC SQL

  1. In SAS, navigate to the Editor window.
  2. Use PROC SQL to query the data and create a local view.
    NOTE: This procedure creates a view in the Work library. You can optionally specify a library in the create view statement.
    proc sql;
      create view northwingproducts_view as
      select 
        partitionkey, 
        name 
      from 
        odbclib.northwingproducts 
      where 
        Id = '1';
    quit;
    
  3. Click Run -> Submit to execute the query and create a local view.

Report On or Visualize AWS Management Data in SAS

With a local view created, you can report, visualize, or otherwise analyze AWS Management data using the powerful SAS features. Print a simple report using PROC PRINT and create a basic graph based on the data using PROC GCHART.

Print an HTML Report

  1. In SAS, navigate to the Editor window.
  2. Use PROC PRINT to print an HTML report for the AWS Management NorthwingProducts data.
    proc print data=northwingproducts;
      title "AWS Management NorthwingProducts Data";
    run;
    

Print a Chart

  1. In SAS, navigate to the Editor window.
  2. Use PROC GCHART to create a chart for the NorthwingProducts data.
    proc gchart data=northwingproducts;
      pie partitionkey / sumvar=name
          value=arrow
          percent=arrow
          noheading
          percent=inside plabel=(height=12pt)
          slice=inside value=none
          name='NorthwingProductsChart';
    run;
