ArcGIS Monitor is designed to collect, analyze, and optimize the health of your enterprise geographic information system (GIS) implementations. It helps maximize your enterprise GIS investment by proactively identifying possible issues and providing timely and actionable insights on status, availability, usage, system performance, and resource utilization. Alerts facilitate rapid resolution by providing system administrators with real-time notifications when measurements are outside defined system thresholds. Reports can be used to visualize historical data and enhance communications within the organization.

Operational big picture

ArcGIS Monitor provides nonintrusive system monitoring tools for administrators, managers, and other stakeholders to get insight into the inner workings of their enterprise GIS deployment. High-level data metrics and detailed, rich reporting capabilities let you know what is happening before issues become critical.

Reduce downtime

Repeated downtime events can result in high operational costs and decreased end-user satisfaction. ArcGIS Monitor provides timely detection of potential and existing problems to facilitate rapid resolution and improve response time. Configure alerts and set up notifications when thresholds are exceeded.

Justify resources

ArcGIS Monitor allows you to justify your investment in GIS resources and determine the need for additional resources by proactively assessing the resource usage of your enterprise GIS. Take advantage of usage statistics to see what services and data are in demand by customers to inform future investments.

Keeping an Eye on the Future with ArcGIS Monitor

When we first started using Monitor, it was to see how much our resources were being used by map services. We have to make sure our servers aren’t running out of RAM, CPU, or disk space.
