I wanted to bring attention a blog Your Ideas in ArcGIS Enterprise 10.9 written by my captivating counterpart in Customer Experience, @ThomasEdghill  . New versions of ArcGIS Enterprise rely, in big part, on customer feedback. This can occur in many forms, but the most mainstream ways are by logging defects and enhancement requests through Technical Support, and logging ideas through Esri Community.

Thomas' blog goes over the main ideas that were implemented in this release, and I encourage you all to go through and read it, but here are some of the features that were added through your feedback:

  1. ArcGIS Enterprise may now share content  to multiple ArcGIS Online organizations by pairing distributed and partnered collaborations
  2. Administrative reports enable administrators to expose various usage statistics about your ArcGIS Enterprise organization's items and its members
  3. Multifactor authentication is now supported for built in users
  4. Federated ArcGIS Servers may now be assigned aliases to enable quick identification of which server does what

This is just a short list, there are many more to see, please take a look at the main blog if you are interested to see how we implement your ideas into the software.

Changes are coming to the OpenStreetMap vector basemaps. The OSM source content will be updated to use OSM Daylight distribution data. Map styles will also be updated. This change will impact ArcGIS Enterprise users (10.8, 10.8.1, 10.9). Details on the extent of the impact are included in this post.

In any enterprise environment, it is crucial that services are able to restart/recover automatically in the event of disruption or failure

When your services are not able to automatically recover, this can cause long outages for your users, especially if you are not actively monitoring your underlying infrastructure.

ArcGIS Notebook Server on Windows makes this difficult as it makes use of the Docker Desktop application but there is a way around this.

There are normally different stages while implementing a big IT system/project, and those stages always come with its own working environments, e.g development, UAT, Prod etc.  It would be necessary to populate contents produced in one environment into another.

Coming to a gis project built upon on ArcGIS for server in the above scenario, ArcGIS services are undoubtedly are among those contents which needed to move across different environments.

When working with Enterprise scale systems, a good mentality is to patch regularly and upgrade often.

This is the behaviour that we have grown used to with the growing use of smart phones and the applications we use them for, so why do we not keep this behaviour for software suites we manage for an enterprise.

                Our IT services has deployed anti-ransomeware software (ARS).  ARS is an important tool to help protect our data from ransomware attacks.  The government of PEI was recently hit with a ransomware attack in February 2020.   

On April 7th ARS was deployed on our network storage. Our data store, config store, file geodatabases and raster tile caches are stored on our network storage.  Coincidentally, we have noticed stability issues with the our ArcGIS servers through most of April.  On April 30th the network storage team helped us identify a pattern that showed stability issues with the our ArcGIS Servers that coincided with the dates and times of events logged by the ARS software. 

 

Before I continue let me strongly state “There has NOT been a ransomware attack on our ArcGIS servers.

 

We believe that normal ArcGIS Server operations might mimic ransomware activity.  This triggers the ARS software to log an event and then begin to take snapshots of our files on the network storage servers.  We suspect the snapshotting may be interfering with the normal operation of ArcGIS Server.  Some of our users have reported failed map service requests and we have witnessed missing raster map tiles in our tile cached basemaps.

 

Since April 30th the Isilon server team has disabled the ARS snapshotting activity for our storage space on the network servers.  This appears to have improved the stability of our ArcGIS servers but we are continuing to closely monitor for problems.

 

If ARS has been deployed on your storage servers and you are having stability issues with ArcGIS Server you should dig a little deeper.  Have the ARS logs reviewed to see if they mention the ArcGIS Server admin account and see if the dates and times in the logs coincide with dates and time of ArcGIS Server problems.  Good luck!

As you may have heard, due to the continuously evolving circumstances around COVID-19, last week’s Esri Developer Summit plenary was held in front of an empty audience.  If you missed the Livestream of the plenary, do not worry - it can all be found here.  And, better yet, the focus of This Week's Picks - ArcGIS Enterprise is the Dev Summit Plenary Highlights.  The highlights included:

1. Big data analysis using GeoAnalytics Tools

2. Use raster analytics and the ArcGIS API for Python to monitor coral bleaching

3. Automation comes to ArcGIS Notebooks

This Week

 

 1. Big data analysis using GeoAnalytics Tools

Sarah's demo at the plenary covered how, using Apache Spark, GeoAnalytics performs parallel analysis to analyze vector and tabular datasets in both ArcGIS Enterprise and ArcGIS Pro.  Without Spark, each tool has to be executed separately; with Spark, a function can be written to chain multiple tools together.   With the run_python_script tool, Sarah’s workflows can be streamed across ArcGIS GeoAnalytics Server.  Read more for yourself here.  As a bonus, check out the related video here.

2. Use raster analytics and the ArcGIS API for Python to monitor coral bleaching

Vinay’s ArcGIS Image Server plenary demo covered how analysis tools in raster analytics can process multidimensional data.  Utilizing both Notebooks and the ArcGIS API for Python, he created a model that helped illustrate and comprehend the impact of sea surface temperature on coral bleaching.  These tools empower users to build custom applications and automate their raster workflows.  Check it out for yourself in this blog and this video

3. Automation comes to ArcGIS Notebooks

Automating tasks can make life easier for ArcGIS Enterprise administrators.  At the Dev Summit plenary, Jay spoke of three types of automation: simple, advanced, and intelligent.  As this blog mentions, it is important for organizations to understand and consider these types of automation so that they can make the best decisions for their organizations.  Starting with ArcGIS Enterprise 10.8, ArcGIS Notebooks have an "Execute Notebook" option.  This option allows administrators to automate notebook execution – to run an existing notebook without manually accessing the notebook.  Read more about this for yourself here.  To see the demo for yourself, watch the video here

Thanks for keeping an eye out for This Week's Picks!  And, as always, thank you for reading and please feel free to reach out in the comments below 
 if there are any outstanding questions, comments, or suggestions for future topics.  Be sure to check out This Week's Picks - ArcGIS Online and ArcGIS Pro - and stay tuned for more This Week's Picks - ArcGIS Enterprise.
