Apparently RefName never equals your comparison strings. All constant strings includes German characters ä or ü, but you don't use the "u" constant string prefix. Depending on the incoming string's format the comparison might not be what you expekt. You should write if RefName==u"Flächen für die Landwirdshaft" and make sure that RefName also is a correct ...

In theory this is a "solved" problem from a SysAdmin perspective. Any good monitoring package can monitor things, it just depends on identifying things to monitor (for which it helps having well documented protocols; ArcGIS's proprietary services make things somewhat tricker). http://www.thegeekstuff.com/2009/09/top-5-best-network-monitoring-tools/ - ...

Assuming that your points are in order, and that this works at 10.0 (I'm using 10.2): Field Calculator Expression: dist( !Shape! ) Field Calculator Code Block: count = 0 def dist(shape): global prev global count point = arcpy.PointGeometry(shape.getPart(0)) if count > 0: distance = point.distanceTo(prev) else: ...

Consider using Dissolve. This will write the output to a new feature class but it may be more efficient. In my experience dissolve operations have taken less time than merge. Run a benchmark to determine which is faster. There may be some issue with merge/dissolve wrt to performance and dissolving circular arcs (such as results of buffering points, ...

First, if needed, create a LAS Dataset from your .las files. Then use LAS Dataset to Raster, select Average for a DEM output.

As from the comment, you could loop on each feature then run the selection by location on a feature layer. There are different types of loops for this purpose 1) based on a selection by attribute for each FID in a feature layer or 2) directly based on the geometry in a cursor. Here is the code with a cursor, which is more straightforward IMHO. You get the ...

Try lastools. Many parts are free and you could BLAST2EM and get just get what you need. Do not try to interpolate lidar in ArcGIS unless you are prepared for a long wait. You have a robust set of options and it runs from command line. It will use the TIN approach to create your dem. It is fast and efficient.

Style files can be loaded from anywhere on your system. There are two schools of thought here. keep them where the system style files are and the system can get to them easily. Keep them on a shared drive where everybody can get to them and add to them. There are plusses and minuses to both. I adhere to No. 2. Sharing is better. In Customize there ...

I'm not aware of any existing tools, but you can find information in the server logs if a context has failed to start or failed to connect to datasource (depending on logging level). They are available in C:\Program Files (x86)\ArcGIS\Server10.0\server\user\log (or where your install dir is). You could either just scan through the textfiles or use Arcobjects ...

Thanks for all the great ideas. Unfortunately I was stuck using arcGIS as getting admin privileges at my workplace is near impossible. Basically what I ended up doing was appending 100 files at a time rather than 1 at a time. This reduced the runtime to just over 24 hours.

I am probably late but it may be helpful to others. I was in need of the same functionality in 10.2 that we had in ArcView 3.2, in winch we can cut, union, merge, clip, intersect, and other overlaying operations directly inside the editing session. I have just found my way by following this procedure (providing you have ArcEditor, as I do and do not know if ...

I realize this question was closed long ago, but I have some old tools that this was newly a problem for and the SendKeys solution no longer seems to work, so I rolled my own solution after experimenting. It doesn't disable drawing, but creates the performance equivalent of that by disabling layers and reenabling them when done. Having the script run in the ...
