In ArcGIS Desktop we have this bad boy below to track the progress of a geoprocessing tool.
I am having trouble finding it in ArcGIS Pro. Does it still exist?
I think the equivalent is in the Catalog pane > History tab
Hey Dylan, thanks for the quick response. Unfortunately I am not getting any more information about the process from the history tab. Its kind of sad that my computer's fan speed could be telling me more information about what is going on the with process than ArcGIS pro itself. At least in Desktop we had a breakdown of the processes and could monitor if any errors were appearing.
Also, if you hover your mouse over the little blue arrow next to 'Delete Identical', a window will appear analogous to the foreground geoprocessing window you get in ArcMap when a tool is running.
Do you know if I ran the geoprocessing tools as python scripts would it return progress output and messages in the python window?
If you ran your code from the Python window within Pro, then yes it would return results if you used print statements at points you wanted information to the Python window. But writing a script line by line in the Python window is impractical. If you made a script tool, you can print statements to the geoprocessing history tab and hover-over-popup-window-thing using arcpy.AddMessage() at places in your code you would like info, like print something at each pass of a loop, etc.
