When is it recommended to recycle virtual servers?

Last Published: March 9, 2021


The information in this article applies to retired product ArcIMS.

It is always recommended to recycle ArcMap Server virtual servers.

In addition, recycle the virtual servers when the following occurs:

  • When a firewall ends idle connections between the ArcIMS Spatial Server and ArcSDE. Recycle all virtual servers before the idle timeout occurs.
  • When an increasing amount of memory is used over time by the ArcIMS spatial server. Recycle all virtual servers to avoid the spatial server from consuming all the available memory.
