ArcGIS Monitor

January 2018 Previous month Next month

Medical doctors use tools to monitor patients’ health, diagnose problems, and help determine how to treat illnesses.  Now, IT administrators and GIS managers can use ArcGIS Monitor to perform those activities on ArcGIS implementations. 


Esri is super excited to announce the launch of a new product – ArcGIS Monitor - a tool uniquely tailored to maximize your GIS and IT infrastructure investment by monitoring the health of your ArcGIS implementations.



The primary goal of ArcGIS Monitor is to help you efficiently and effectively operate and manage your ArcGIS technology implementations by providing actionable insights into your system usage and performance. Some of the key benefits of this product include:

  • Maximizes GIS investments through more effective system operation and reduced administration costs.
  • Improves system performance and end-user satisfaction.
  • Provides timely detection of potential and existing system infrastructure and operation problems that facilitates rapid resolution.
  • Increases understanding of actual system utilization for “right sizing” components and improves accounting.
  • Collects actionable, quantifiable metrics, such as system uptime, load, over and under-utilized resources, and usage trends over time.
  • Generates reports that improve communications among GIS, IT, business owners, and senior management.


The design and development of ArcGIS Monitor are based on real-world Professional Services experiences to help customers diagnose and resolve system performance problems, and achieve a deeper understanding of actual system resource usage. ArcGIS Monitor helps bridge the gap between IT and GIS. Its comprehensive capabilities are uniquely tailored to work with Esri ArcGIS technology, and can fit into any organization’s existing monitoring ecosystem.  In addition, it monitors both software and infrastructure components of an Esri Platform implementation.
