SASTMP jobs are submitted before each SAS Loadset. They are performing the metadata validation. Is it possible to turn them off as they are taking care of metadata validation in custom code?

SASTMP program is taking a considerable amount of work library space when loading a 1.2GB SAS dataset file and resulting in the below errors:

Below error is at SAS level when tried to load 1.2 GB size dataset in LSH using Loadset (Load from server OS=YES), file placed on server location:

ERROR: Insufficient space in file WORK.'SASTMP-<ID_NUMBER>'n.UTILITY.
ERROR: File WORK.'SASTMP-<ID_NUMBER>'n.UTILITY is damaged. I/O processing did not complete.
NOTE: Error was encountered during utility-file processing. You may be able to execute the SQL statement successfully if you allocate more space to the WORK library.
NOTE: PROC SQL set option NOEXEC and will continue to check the syntax of statements.
NOTE: The SAS System stopped processing this step because of errors.
NOTE: SAS set option OBS=0 and will continue to check statements. This might cause NOTE: No observations in data set.
NOTE: PROCEDURE SQL used (Total process time):


1.  Loadset created in LSH work Area
2. Table descriptor created using  upload file option (dataset having 10 records, same structure is used to create TD)
