After some time of using ArcIMS, the disk space of the ArcIMS server may decrease and map services may fail to start because the disk space is low.
When creating ArcMap image services, temporary files are written but are only used for a few seconds during the map service creation or if the ArcIMS server is stopped and restarted. Because these temporary files are not automatically removed can fill available disk space and be a cause for map services start failure.
Set up the ArcIMS Tasker service to clean these files up in a specified interval, for example after, 15 minutes:
Code: <CLEANUP dir="C:/Program Files/ArcGIS/ArcIMS/Server/tmp" exts="mxd" interval="15" />
Note: The path to the temporary directory may be different on your machine.Instructions provided describe how to edit environment variables for various platforms. See: How To: Edit an environment variable
Code: taskFile=C:/Program Files/ArcGIS/ArcIMS/AppServer/Tasker/Tasks.xml
Note: Tasker can also remove other files on a regular basis.
