This article describes a process for GIS and IT to collaborate to configure F5's BIG-IP to provide access to  an ArcGIS Enterprise deployment.  The goal of the article is share some of the foundational concepts for a "basic" case.  "Basic" does not mean "simple", however.  This configuration objective involves understanding and using many advanced concepts from several different information domains.

Optimizing the ArcSOC instance availability and utilization for your service is a good strategy for helping users obtain fast response times and lower wait times from their dynamic requests to your Site. It can also benefit server resource utilization like memory as the service is not running a lot of instances that it will never use.

But optimizing the minimum and maximum number of instances for your dedicated services is not a one-time job. Usage patterns of your services can change over time so the task of collecting this information is something that you will want and to revisit periodically as a GIS administrator.

Before diving into how to observe ArcSOC instance activity statistics, let’s review some of the key details of the two ArcSOC-based service types in ArcGIS Server and how they play into this discussion:

  • Dedicated
  • Shared

Looking for a quick way to summarize the details of all your ArcGIS Enterprise services? If so, then System Log Parser's ServiceDetails Analysis Type is highly recommended. This feature performs a scan of your Site through the REST Admin API and presents the gathered information into a spreadsheet report for easy digestion.

The report is a great resource to find details on your service provider statistics, service configuration info, or data source analysis.

The System Log Parser (SLP) utility is great for being able to analyze many different "ArcGIS Enterprise" log sources to help quantify the usage of your Site. It is free and includes an easy-to-use graphical user interface (GUI) called SystemLogsGUI.exe. But, did you know it can also be run from the command line via the slp.exe that is included with the download?
Command line capable execution makes a good fit for automation through PowerShell or good old fashioned bat scripts.

The slp.exe executable includes all of the same capabilities. However, you can override many of the limits imposed by the GUI such as: the end time and start time. You can even access features that are not available from the GUI like: searching with specific UTC dates, customizing the name of the report, and enabling the application debug log (for troubleshooting).

Although you are probably familiar with using System Log Parser (SLP) to read logs and help you quantify your ArcGIS Enterprise usage, there is a relatively new feature in this popular, free utility that can make the effort easier and the analysis more powerful. 

The new feature, commonly referred to as the Optimized report in System Log Parser, allows you perform log queries of much larger time spans. In addition, it can perform the parsing faster and with tremendous memory savings over the classic analysis types (e.g. Simple, WithOverviewCharts and Complete).

The Optimized option still generates a spreadsheet-based report statistically summarizing the collected log information into key time focused categories.
