What are the useful logs to troubleshoot ArcGIS Monitor?

Last Published: April 25, 2020


When troubleshooting in ArcGIS Monitor, logs files are helpful to identify and verify the issue. The log files can be found in the default installation directory of ArcGIS Monitor. However, they may not be generated automatically.

Alternatively, run support.bat via Windows File Explorer by navigating to the ArcGIS Monitor's installation Support folder to generate the log files. If the UI is inaccessible, follow the workaround below.

To generate the log files:

  1. Run the Windows Command Prompt with administrator privileges.
  2. Use cd to change the directory to the ArcGIS Monitor's installation Support folder. For example:
cd C:\ArcGIS Monitor\Support\
  1. Type support.bat and press Enter to generate the log files.

  2. In the Support folder, the log files for the ArcGIS Monitor service are located in a folder with a 10-digit prefix. For example, Support_1234567890.

Depending on the issue, refer to the following sections for information on the different log file types.
