ArcGIS Server uses four ports for communication between GIS servers. When you create or join a site, these are assigned to ports 4000–4003. If any of those ports are in use by other applications, those ports are skipped and a corresponding number of additional ports are used beyond 4003.
You must ensure that your firewall allows communication with other GIS server machines through four ports beginning with 4000 and not counting any port currently in use by another application. You can use this operation to see where the ports were assigned (and thus which ports you should open on your firewall) or use it to modify ArcGIS Server to use a different set of port numbers if there is a conflict.
You'll notice that the ports are named according to their function. The port names do not have to match the port numbers between GIS server machines. For example, the NamingPort could be 4003 on one GIS server and 4006 on a different GIS server.
Editing the machine configuration causes the machine to be restarted, so it's not recommended you perform this operation during peak usage.
The URL where the Administrator API is running on the server machine. Example: http://<machineName>:6080/arcgis/admin
The web server maximum heap size limits the file size that can be sent to the GIS Server. The default value is -1 MB.
The web server JVM will use ¼ of available system memory in this default case.
If you are observing a performance impact and you have more system memory, you can increase the heap size of the ArcGIS Server's web server by updating this value from the default of -1MB to an appropriate value.
The alias of the web server's SSL certificate.
The application server maximum heap size limits the file size that can be sent to the GIS Server. The default value is 256 MB.
The SOC maximum heap size limits the file size that can be sent to the GIS Server. The default value is 64 MB.
The name of the port being the parameter and its value being the port number.
The response format. The default response format is html.
