The Monitor.properties file contains the defaults for each Monitor. This file is located at:
Windows: <ArcGIS Installation Directory>\ArcIMS\Server\Monitor
UNIX and Linux: $AIMSHOME/Monitor
This file defines the following ArcIMS Monitor properties:
Name of the computer on which the ArcIMS Monitor is running.
The fully qualified name of the computer on which the ArcIMS Monitor is running, for example, monitorName=mymachine.mydomain.com. This property is necessary only if conflicts arise when using the computer name in registryHost and a domain is also needed.
The ArcIMS Application Server port on which the ArcIMS Monitor, ArcIMS Tasker, and ArcIMS Spatial Servers register. For more information, see Configuring ArcIMS ports.
The port used for communication between the ArcIMS Application Server and the Spatial Server. For more information, see Configuring ArcIMS ports.
Setting the debug value to True turns on the Monitor debug logging that contains all Monitor communications. Logging can be either to a console window or to file. To view in file format, you must also set the logToFile property to True. On Windows, to view the status in a console window, check that the ArcIMS Monitor service has the "Allow Service to Interact with Desktop" setting enabled. For more information, see Enabling full verbose logging.
Setting the logToFile value to True writes the ArcIMS Monitor debug logging to a file. A log file named MonitorDebug_XXXXXXXXX.log is written to the log directory under the Monitor directory. For more information, see Enabling full verbose logging.
Optional property used with the ArcIMS Service Administrator to manage ArcSDE services and connections. The sde.properties file references and XML file named SDESite.xml. The information in this file is used by ArcIMS to keep a record of which ArcSDE instances are being administered. For more information about administering ArcSDE services, see Managing ArcSDE services and connections.
Normally, ArcIMS Monitor monitors Spatial Servers. If a Monitor is installed for administering ArcSDE services, runSpatialServer should be set to False. For information on how to install a Monitor for ArcSDE Administration, see the ArcSDE Services Monitor discussion in the ArcIMS Installation Guide.
