I´m working as a GIS professionalist at a governmental geodata provider.

I´m working with: - ESRI ArcGIS Server and Desktop - FME Server and Desktop - Visual Studio 2010 Professional (for .NET programming) - Netbeans 7.2 (for the java stuff) - Python for smaller scripting tasks - SQL Server (Geometry) - PostGIS, Geoserver, OpenLayers, GeoWebCache, etc...

comment How can I monitor my arcgis server 10.0 services?
We had the problem that ArcGIS WMS protocol still was delivering a HTTP 200 ok with image content on a WMS GetMap request where the image was empty because ArcGIS server lost database connection and therefore didn't render images anymore...also the REST Service wasn't responding, but the WMS service just ignored that ArcGIS Server wasn't fully operable anymore. It also happens that certain services are down while the rest of the server answers on the checks you defined in NAGIOS ... thats whats tricky about it

comment How can I monitor my arcgis server 10.0 services?
Thats a tough one...after 5 years we haven't yet finished it to implement enough heartbeat tests to check if an arcgis server instance is working as expected or not. There are commercial tools for it (like geocortex.com/arcgis-server-software/geocortex-optimizer ) but even with that it is tricky. Please add some information about which ArcGIS server services and protocols you use actually and if its only one map service or a couple of map services as this brings more complexity into your checks.

comment How to convert geospatial data with a custom SRS into ESRI Shapefiles?
Is at least the geodetic datum matching on any one you can find on spatialreference.org ? If you have to do a geodetic datum transformation, you will need transformation parameters, which you normally can't get by yourself except you are an mathematics and/or geodetic genius. Perhaps you can post the content of the prj file here

comment How to convert an XML to Shapefile using FME?
Well, yes FME is able to convert nearly any format to a shapefile. But it depends on the structure/schema of your XML. Asking if it is possible to read XML is like asking if it is possible to read database or simply a text file. Please be more specific about the schema/structure of the XML. How would you like to store coordinates? Where are the attributes? Parsing XML can be tricky, if the structure does not fit common standards. Perhaps you can post a snippet of your XML data here.

comment Merging Personal Geodatabase (MDB) data into ArcSDE using FME?
Yeah, thats true. Because FME ESRI Edition relies on the Arcobjects library for reading and writing ESRI Formats, and because ESRI hasn't delivered a x64 Edition of its software yet, also FME has to be the x86 version (as described in fmepedia.safe.com/articles/FAQ/Which-version-FME-Windows). Thats truly a big problem at the moment...I can't wait to get the first true 64-Bit ArcObjects Library...things are getting much simpler then.

comment how do I reestablish all feature class references in mxd after their names change?
I was also facing crashes while using the arcpy.mapping site package. Try 64-bit geoprocessing (resources.arcgis.com/en/help/main/10.2/index.html#//…) - if your PC allows it for sure - which I found out was running more stable.

comment Harmonizing feature class definitions from many geodatabases
Please provide Info about what type of backend your geodatabase uses. Is it a personal geodatabase or an enterprise geodatabase backed by some RDBMS? If latter, then which one (Oracle, SQL Server)? Do you want to accomplish some kind of database chagescripting / schema evolutions?
