    Hi All,


    I am using CA APM 10.1.


    Just wanted to check is there a way to capture all the caught and uncaught exception in error detector.

    Not just the count but also the Error description.

    I am currently using the Weblogic Java agent with typical configurations only.


    Will any configuration made to toggles-typical.pbd will help and in order to avoid performance degredation  can I specifically run this for particular method


    # Exception Configuration

    # ================

    # Introscope can trace all locations where exceptions are either

    # thrown or caught. This can cause performance degredation so

    # it is not traced by default. Uncomment the following lines

    # if you wish to turn on this tracing.

    # InstrumentPoint: ThrowException

    # InstrumentPoint: CatchException


    If need to create a custom pbd which tracer should I key in.

    Thanks team in advance.

    Hi Winkle,


    please see this documentation for reference

    ExceptionErrorReporter tracer is what you should be using and you can use errors.pbd to define specific classes you would like the error detector to report errors/exceptions for.

    Hello Winkle


    Before enabling error detector on you env please  verify you system resource properly  as sometimes it create  load to the

    system and which leads to performance issue .

    Hi Winkle:

    Marking as correct since using ExceptionErrorReporter tracer looks like the way to go. Please let us know if the responses were helpful and if there are any followup questions
