ArcGIS Server Scene Service Performance Patch

Summary

This patch improves the performance of scene services and allows more concurrent users to consume scene services at the same time.

Description

Esri® announces the ArcGIS Server Scene Service Performance Patch. This patch improves performance and resolves some scalability issues for scene services that result in suboptimal use of system capacity when 3D scene services are under heavy load. After installing this patch, the system will be able to support a larger number of concurrent users consuming scene services. This patch deals specifically with the issues listed below under Issues Addressed with this patch.


Issues Addressed with this patch


  • BUG-000122285 - ArcGIS Enterprise 3D scene services deliver poor throughput and do not scale well across multiple GIS nodes.
To avoid conflicts the 10.6.1 version also addresses:
  • BUG-000121595 - Occasional/Intermittent site creation and create service/Delete service issue with Server.
  • BUG-000120805 - ArcGIS Server has an access control issue.
  • BUG-000120195 - Failed to restore hosted services containing associated views.
  • BUG-000119801 - Sample fails when more than one mosaic datasets are input as input rasters.
  • BUG-000119759 - Improve the quality and performance of the Sample tool.
  • BUG-000119534 - Path Allocation produces incorrect results when the source characteristics are specified.
  • BUG-000119493 - Sink tool creates two unique values for sink regions that are diagonally connected. This is incorrect as diagonally connected sinks should be identified with a single unique value.
  • BUG-000119425 - The SummarizeRasterWithin and ConvertRasterToFeature tasks in ArcGIS Image Server crashes when trying to directly read an input image service collocated on a cloud raster store.
  • BUG-000119424 - Zonal Geometry as Table and Zonal Geometry tools generate incorrect results when a field other than value was used. In this case, the logic for calculating zonal geometry properties is not correct, and the software may crash.
  • BUG-000119423 - Watershed tool hangs when processing extent is set to a single cell catchment.
  • BUG-000119422 - Flow distance tool in modelbuilder does not display 'FlowDistanceType' parameter.
  • BUG-000119421 - Flow Distance tool produces NoData for majority of cells when input surface raster is not hydro conditioned.
  • BUG-000119419 - Euclidean Direction using high resolution data produces incorrect output.
  • BUG-000119323 - RasterToPolygon with "Create multipart features" enabled, locks the output for editing.
  • BUG-000118421 - If there are non-English characters in a connection string, the Copy Raster tool will return this error when importing a raster in an enterprise geodatabase, "ERROR 999999: Error executing function. No raster store is configured. Not running inside a server process. Failed to execute (CopyRaster).''
  • BUG-000117983 - Access control issue in the ArcGIS Server tile handler.
  • BUG-000117954 - Scene service should ignore certificate errors while consuming scene caches in scene viewer.
  • BUG-000117633 - In 10.6.1 and prior, the message bus platform service may not be initialized correctly in all environments.
  • BUG-000117372 - Cross-site scripting (XSS) in Server Admin api.
  • BUG-000116972 - Collector for ArcGIS (iOS) fails to submit photo attachments to hosted feature layers in ArcGIS Enterprise 10.6.1.
  • BUG-000116589 - Cost Path and Cost Path as Polyline with flow direction input for backlink raster is slow.
  • BUG-000116047 - Cost Path produces incorrect output when Flow Direction raster is used as input for distance and backlink raster.
  • BUG-000115799 - Vector Tile Layers hosted in ArcGIS Enterprise 10.6.1 do not overzoom successfully when viewed in the Map Viewer.
  • BUG-000113368 - Euclidean allocation, distance and direction tools are much slower in current version verses previous version of ArcMap.
  • BUG-000111075 - A feature service consumed in a GeoEvent Service fails to re-establish communication with the database once the database connection comes back after a communication failure.
  • BUG-000111075 - Service recycling after a DB connection failure does not happen for Feature Server.
  • BUG-000098315 - Sample return Null data, when input raster is Mosaic.
  • BUG-000096996 - ExtractMultiValuestoPoints, ExtractValuestoPoints returns error when the input points feature is a XY Event Layer.

Installing this patch on Windows


Installation Steps:


This patch should be installed on all ArcGIS Server installations related to the ArcGIS Server site.

The ArcGIS product listed in the table must be installed on your system before you can install a patch. Each patch setup is specific to the ArcGIS product in the list.
