The amount of error, warning and diagnostic messages issued by the OAL is controlled by the environment variable

which must be given an integer value in the range 0–2. 0 means “mute” - only messages resulting from fatal error conditions will be issued. Setting SAS_VERBOSITY to 2 will lead to detailed diagnostic messages the meaning of which will not necessarily be obvious to the normal user. Level 1 will generate a moderate amount of informative messages. Please consult the documentation of package error for further information on the general SAS error messaging system.
