    Hi,

     

    I need to add a custom nameformatter to a StalledMethodTracer. I tried to do that the following way:

     

    SetTracerClassMapping: SOAPStalledMethodTracer com.wily.introscope.agent.trace.StalledMethodTracer com.wily.introscope.probebuilder.validate.ResourceNameValidator

    SetTracerParameter: SOAPStalledMethodTracer nameformatter ***.nameformatter.soap.SOAPNameFormatter (where *** is the package name)

    SetTracerParameter: SOAPStalledMethodTracer reentrancy instance

     

    I then put the tracer on a method:

    TraceComplexMethodsWithThresholdIfFlagged: MYFLAG SOAPStalledMethodTracer "TEST|Frontends|ByService|{Service}:Slow" 500

     

    And then get the following error:

    [ERROR] [IntroscopeAgent.Agent] Introscope AutoProbe will not run because the provided directives files are not valid: Can't proceed because (/opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/wily/config/instrumentation/***.pbd:23) the tracer does not support the threshold parameter. Please restart with valid directives.

     

    It seems as if my tracer extension is not recognized to deal with thresholds. Can you point me to a solution?

     

    Thank you,

    Stefan

    The StalledMethodTracer has a bit of a "gotcha" in the SetTracerClassMapping directive. Try the following:

     

    SetTracerClassMapping: SOAPStalledMethodTracer com.wily.introscope.agent.trace.StalledMethodTracer com.wily.introscope.probebuilder.validate.StalledMethodTracerValidator

    SetTracerParameter:    SOAPStalledMethodTracer nameformatter ***.nameformatter.soap.SOAPNameFormatter

    SetTracerParameter:    SOAPStalledMethodTracer reentrancy instance
