The Performance Engineering team is pleased to announce the availability of the new PerfTools Add-in for ArcGIS Pro, versions 1.2 – 1.4. This is a new release of a widely-used tool for assessing performance of ArcGIS Pro and its underlying spatial data in your organization.
Are you curious to know how long ArcGIS Pro takes to render a particular bookmark or spatial extent, or play an animation? Or have you needed to monitor how long it takes to make a spatial selection from your underlying data? These are some questions that PerfTools allows you to investigate.
With PerfTools, a comprehensive scripting capability allows you to edit, run, and log performance scenarios as you make underlying changes to your hardware, virtualization environments, spatial data, or other key user workflows. You’ll soon be able to discover any performance ramifications, make adjustments, and re-run. To get you started, we’ve enclosed several sample scripts with the PerfTools download.
PerfTools Build 22.214.171.124 extends the functionality of the previous version with two new commands: “AddLayer” and “SetLayer”:
- AddLayer allows you to add new data to your map or scene via a simple script command, returning the timings of the add operation and its subsequent draw phase.
- SetLayer allows you to alter several visibility options of an existing layer, also via script command. Layer on/off visibility, as well as transparency, are easy to adjust with this command. In a similar fashion, PerfTools logs the timings of these operations.
