public class IServerObjectAdminProxy
extends com.esri.arcgis.interop.Dispatch
implements IServerObjectAdmin, Serializable

Provides access to members that administer the ArcGIS server.

Description

IServerObjectAdmin provides methods to retrieve server configuration information and to administer the ArcGIS Server.

The IServerObjectAdmin interface can be obtained by a call to GISServerConnection.ServerObjectAdmin.

Remarks

Any application that runs as a user account in the agsadmin user group on the ArcGIS Server can use the IGISServerConnection interface to connect to the ArcGIS Server and to get a reference to the ServerObjectAdmin. If the user account is not part of the agsadmin user group the ServerObjectAdmin property on IServerConnection will return an error. Applications that are running as accounts that can connect to the server but are not part of the agsadmin user group can use the ServerObjectManager property on IGISServerConnection to get a reference on the ServerObjectManager.

The IServerObjectAdmin interface has the necessary methods for an application to adminstrate both the set of server object configurations and types associated with the server, and to administer aspects of the server itself. The following administration functionality of the ArcGIS Server is exposed by methods and properties on IServerObjectAdmin :

Adminster server object configurations:

Administer aspects of the server itself:

When To Use

Use the IServerObjectAmin interface when your application connects to the ArcGIS Server to administer the server's set of server object configurations and server object types, and for administering aspects of the server itself, such as the list of machines that may host server objects.

If your application is connecting to the server to make use of objects in the server, use the IServerObjectManager interface.

                                              AutomationException
Creates a new server directory.

Remarks

Both server objects and server applications typically need to write either temporary data or result data to some location in order for it to be delivered to, or presented to the end user. For example, a map server object's ExportMapImage method can create a image file which is then displayed on a web applicaiton. These files are typically transient and temporary by nature. For example, when a map server write's an image to satisfy a request from a web application, that image is needed only for the time it takes to display it on the web application. An application that creates check out personal geodatabases for download would provide a finite amount of time between which that geodatabase is created and when it can be downloaded.

Because server applications support many user sessions, these output files can accumulate and need to be periodically cleaned up. The server provides the cabability to automatically cleanup these output files if they are written to one of the server's output directories.

Use the CreateServerDirectory method to create a new server directory that you can pass as an argument to the AddServerDirectory method to add new server directories to your GIS Server. Once you have added the server directory, you can configure your server objects and server applications to make use of the server directory.

Note: server directories must be accessible by all host machines configured in the GIS server.

                              AutomationException
Stops a server object configuration and shuts down any running instances of server objects defined by the configuration.

Description

The StopConfiguration method stops a server object configuration. Stopping a server object configuration both makes the server object configuration unusable by clients (calls to CreateServerObject referencing the configuration will fail), and it also shuts down any of the confiuration's running server objects. If any of those objects are in use and executing requests, they will be interupted and shut down.

You should stop a configuration when you need to change its properties (such as pooling model or recycling model). Use the StartConfiguration method to re-start the configuration.

If you want to stop the confuguration without interupting clients which are making use of server objects, you can pause the configuration using PauseConfiguration and wait until such a time that all server object usage has ended, then call StopConfiguration to stop the configuration.

Supported Platforms

Windows, Solaris, Linux

Specified by:
stopConfiguration in interface IServerObjectAdmin
Parameters:
name - The name (in)
typeName - The typeName (in)
Throws:
IOException - If there are interop problems.
AutomationException - If the ArcObject component throws an exception.

pauseConfiguration

public void pauseConfiguration(String name,
                               String typeName)
                        throws IOException,
                               AutomationException
Makes the configuration unavailable to clients for processing requests, but does not shut down running instances of server objects, or interrupt requests in progress.

Remarks

The PauseConfiguration method will pause the server object configuration. Pausing the configuration does not interupt any requests that are being executed by instances of server objects managed by that configuration. A paused server object, hevever, will refuse future requests.

You should pause server objects if you want to lock requests from being processed, but you want requests in process to complete. Once all objects are not longer in use, you can perform necessary operations (such as database maintenance, stopping the server object configuration to changes properties, etc). Use the GetConfigurationStatus and IServerObjectConfigurationStatus to determine if any server objects are in use.

Use the StartConfiguration method to resume the server object configuration.

A machine that can host server objects must can the Server Object Container installed on it, and the machine must be added to the list of host machines managed by the Server Object Manager.

Use the CreateMachine method to create a new server machine that you can pass as an argument to the AddMachine method to add new host machines to your GIS Server.

Product Availability

Available with ArcGIS Engine, ArcGIS Desktop, and ArcGIS Server.

Supported Platforms

Windows, Solaris, Linux

Specified by:
createMachine in interface IServerObjectAdmin

addMachine

public void addMachine(IServerMachine machine)
                throws IOException,
                       AutomationException
Adds a host machine (created with CreateMachine) to the GIS server.

Remarks

ArcGIS Server is a distributed system. Server objects managed by the GIS server run on one or more host machines. A machine that can host server objects must can the Server Object Container installed on it, and the machine must be added to the list of host machines managed by the Server Object Manager.

Use the AddMachine method to add new host machines to your GIS Server. Once a machine has been added to the GIS server, as new server object instances are created, the server object manager will make use of the new machine.

IOException - If there are interop problems.
AutomationException - If the ArcObject component throws an exception.

updateMachine

public void updateMachine(IServerMachine machine)
                   throws IOException,
                          AutomationException
Updates the properties of a host machine.

Remarks

The UpdateMachine method will update the host machine that is specified when the method is called. You can use the GetMachine or GetMachines methods on IServerObjectAdmin to get a reference to the machine you want to update.

The UpdateMachine is useful for modifying the machine's description.

Product Availability

IOException - If there are interop problems.
AutomationException - If the ArcObject component throws an exception.

getProperties

public IPropertySet getProperties()
                           throws IOException,
                                  AutomationException
The properties for the GIS server.

Remarks

The Properties property on IServerObjectAdmin returns the logging properties for the GIS server. The properties are for the GIS server's logging, and for server object creation timeout.

The GIS server logs its activity, including server object configuration sartup, shutdown, server context creation and shutdown, as well as errors generated through any failed operation or request in the GIS server.

You can control the logging properties through the PropertySet returned by Properties. The following is a description of the logging properties:

LogPath: this is the path to the location on disk that log files are writeen. By default, the LogPath is <install location>\log

LogSize: this is the size to which a single log file can graw (in MB) before a new logfile is created. By default, the LogSize is 10

LogLevel: this is a number between 0 and 5 which indicates the level of detail that the server logs. By default, the LogLevel is 3. The following is a description of the each log level:

All aspects of logging can be changed when the GIS server is running. When they are changed, the server will immediatly use the new logging settings.

Server object creation may hang for a variety of reasons. To prevent this from adversly affecting the GIS server, it has a ConfigurationStartTimeout property which defines the maximim time in seconds a server object instance has to initialize itself before its creation is cancelled.
