I've got a gp service that exports pdfs using connections to mapservices. I'd like to write to a log file when a request to a service times out. For WMS mapservices I see I can use IWmsClientEvents outbound interface on the WmsConnection, but for the AGSServerConnection I don't see any outbound events.

Is there a way to find out when a draw request to an arcgis server mapservice times out?

@Krik If you are using ArcGIS Server 10.1 then using ArcGIS admin API it might possible.. – Sunil Jan 2 '13 at 12:09

You could open a log file for GP service failure. Detailed logging will provide the point of failure.

I have GIS data export functions in GP services --a succesful export must be within web, REST, and AGS timeouts (set in config files) in my case. I have the benefit of timeout error messages to the application, however if the python script/GP service fails it's up to my detailed logging to figure out where the script failed i.e. which timeout.

I wanted to capture the timeout alerts from the server but was told by the DBA that ideally a log (or email alert) should come from the GP failure and it would be an extra step to figure out the script failure from the DB end.

Thanks, but my GP service is consuming mapservices. While this works great for monitoring my gp service, what I really need is a way to determine if a particular mapservice layer in a map being printed was included. The gp service prints using arcobjects, so I'd really like a way to test if the mapservice is available, otherwise the print will be lacking info from that layer. – Kirk Kuykendall Jan 3 '13 at 21:35
