Get name of service

I am trying to make a quick script to report dead layers within an mxd, e.g. layers who point to a bad location in a database or to a web service that is no longer active.


I am having a hard time finding a way to get the name of the service. I would like to get the layer name from the TOC, the url of the server, and the name of the service.



Looking at the layer properties I don't see a way to get the name of the service for Map Service type.

import arcpy

mxd_path = r"xxxx"
#mxd = arcpy.mapping.MapDocument("CURRENT")

mxd = arcpy.mapping.MapDocument(mxd_path)
brknList = arcpy.mapping.ListBrokenDataSources(mxd)
dead_layer_info = []

for brknItem in brknList:
    if brknItem.supports("DATASOURCE"):
        dead_layer_info.append((, brknItem.datasetName, brknItem.dataSource))
    elif brknItem.supports("SERVICEPROPERTIES") and not brknItem.supports("DATASOURCE"):
        service_prop = brknItem.serviceProperties
        url = service_prop.get("URL", "N/A")
        # name = service_prop.get("Name???", "N/A")
        dead_layer_info.append((, " ", url))
        dead_layer_info(, " ", " ")

dead_layer_info = list(set(dead_layer_info))

for row in dead_layer_info:
    print ", ".join(row)

Current output...
