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

Registering data folders and databases with ArcGIS for Server is a new functionality in version 10.1. The purpose of registering data is to ensure your data is accessible to ArcGIS for Server or if it must be copied to the Server. When registering an enterprise database, we have the option of registering it as ArcGIS Server’s Managed Database.
If you want to copy the data over from its primary location, and your service type (a feature or web feature (WFS) service) needs an enterprise geodatabase, you will need to register an enterprise geodatabase as managed.

Most users will find the ArcMap add-in the most useful. We have received great feedback regarding this tool and have since released a new version of the tool which is now available for download.
