Wow, that looks really useful -- thanks! The dynamic service discovery and monitoring sounds perfect for what we need.

I ran it briefly on 10.2 and it seemed to work okay, but we ran into other issues with our 10.2 server so I haven't tested it very extensively. I haven't tested it with 10.1 at all, but it should work on any version since it's basically just checking to see that the WSDL for each service is reachable.

comment How to handle real time GPS data with ArcGIS Javascript API?
If you're tracking a large number of vehicles, you may have better luck creating a map service and adding it as a dynamic map layer instead of using the graphics layer.

comment How to make custom, dynamically generated vector symbols in ArcGIS
I played around a little more with representations, but I wasn't able to get them to do quite what I wanted... I ended up making an approximation by splitting the data into four layers and drawing part of the symbol on each layer. It's about 90% of what I wanted, and the customer is happy with it. I'm planning to take another stab at representations when I have more time, to do it the right way. Thanks!

@blah238 - I haven't gotten a chance to try out the Multivariate Renderer sample, but from the description it sounds like exactly what I am looking for. I'll have to play around with it this afternoon.

comment How to make custom, dynamically generated vector symbols in ArcGIS
I have looked at cartographic representations a bit, and it looks like that would do everything I need as far as creating a custom vector symbol, but I have not found a way to dynamically change a representation marker based on attribute fields. Do you know if ArcObjects can be used to modify cartographic representations on the fly?

@Brad - I meant as the format of symbology, as opposed to using PNG or BMP images. Kirk - Yes, preferably as an optimized map service (MSD)

Yeah, a programmatic solution would be fine. I would prefer to do it through the ArcMap GUI, but if there is a better way to do it through ArcObjects I am open to trying it.

comment ArcGIS 10 Rest services regulary stop working
@tmske Maybe it has something to do with the timing of the automatic recycle schedule -- if the error that causes this occasionally occurs after the auto recycle, it would make sense that you would have to manually recycle (or wait until the next auto recycle).

comment ArcGIS 10 Rest services regulary stop working
Are your services connecting to an external database? I have seen a similar problem when the database recycles and the services temporarily lose connection to it. I think that particular issue was supposed to be solved in version 10 though.
