This blog post provides the latest updates regarding deprecated features in ArcGIS 10.4 and in the recent release of ArcGIS 10.4.1.
As a support analyst, we get a range of fun issues to review. These issues may be specific to the user’s environment, data, workflow, etc. Sometimes, we may notice an influx of calls pertaining to a single workflow. When this happens, we revisit the resources our users have available to them, and ensure that the documentation clearly describes how to execute workflows.
One of these workflow issues we have seen in the call center lately has been working with schema changes in replicas. For example, after creating a replica, you realize you need to add a field to a certain feature class, or remove a domain that is no longer necessary. This blog hopes to make this workflow more intuitive with a few tricks that will help the replica gurus out there efficiently deal with schema changes. Continue reading
In a versioned environment, all edits are stored in what we call delta tables, or Adds and Deletes tables, and these tables are assigned to a unique state ID. Edits are held in the delta tables to handle any conflicts in a multi-user enterprise geodatabase. A compress operation trims the delta tables of any unreferenced state ids, consolidating the states lineage down to one state. If a state is still being referenced, it will remain in the delta tables, resulting in a partial compress.
In a fully compressed geodatabase, there are no rows in the delta tables, and the state tree is trimmed back to one state, state_id=0. Although a full compress is ideal, it is not always necessary and in some cases may not even be practical. For example, if there are many multi-generation replicas in your geodatabase that are not unregistered before the compress, you will need to send changes for all of these replicas to achieve a full compress. If there are many Two-way replicas, and you intend to fully compress both the parent and the child geodatabases, this process of synchronization will need to be done separately from both geodatabases, even if there are no changes to be sent.
You’ve just updated your client and geodatabases to ArcGIS 10.3, and you want to ensure you are using the most up-to-date ArcSDE command line tools and application server install. So where is the install for ArcSDE 10.3? Continue reading
Please be aware that if the recent Oracle Critical Patch Update (CPU) released on October 14th, 2014 is installed on your Oracle database, connecting to the Oracle database will crash ArcGIS. This issue only affects you if you use Oracle. … Continue reading
The Performance Engineering team at Esri is excited to release a new build of PerfQAnalyzer (PQA). This build exposes the Workspace and FeatureClass within the Edit script command assembly, giving users more flexibility in extending and customizing script commands. Please refer to the ReadMe.txt located within the default installation folder for further information. Additional logging is also included in this build, which includes the “Rendering Start Time” as well as a new time stamps option. This option is available within the Log tab and will incrementally place a timestamp in the log for each rendering operation. This enhancement was originally submitted by a user as a request to assist in correlating time stamps from Windows Performance Monitor. Continue reading
Query layers were first introduced at the 10.0 release primarily to allow ArcMap to integrate data from databases that do not contain the system geodatabase repository tables. Think of query layers as a method for accessing database objects that are not … Continue reading
