I’m currently using the ArcGIS Server Properties dialog in ArcCatalog to periodically check the usage statistics for our services. I’d like to be able to chart those to get a big picture view of what’s going on. Does anyone know the location on an ArcServer machine where a file with these statistics is being written, ideally something that could be pulled into a spreadsheet?

The ArcGIS Server logs contain detailed information about server usage. They're located in:

C:\Program Files\ArcGIS\Server\user\log


C:\Program Files\ArcGIS\Server10.0\server\user\log

They're XML files that you could load into a spreadsheet, but the data there might be a bit overwhelming, especially for a busy site. Also, there will be at least one file per day; sometimes more.

Latitude Geographics (where I work) make a product called Geocortex Optimizer that can digest your ArcGIS Server logs to report on server usage.
