  • 1.  pbd runtime error

    Posted 08-10-2016 03:07 PM

    Hi everybody, I´m newie in APM and I'm trying to configurate a new .pdb, so I've created a new pdb file like this



    inside details


    SetFlag: customMathClient

    IdentifyClassAs: "com.client.math.MathWSClient" customMathClient

    TraceAllMethodsIfFlagged: customMathClient BlamePointTracer "CustomMathClient|MathWSClient"

    TurnOn: customMathClient


    I guess it doesn't has any configuration problem, because AutoProbe.MathClientAgent it looks like this


    Introscope AutoProbe Log: C:\APM\Agentes\tomcat\wily\logs\AutoProbe.20160810-143414.log

    Release (Build 990015)(Diagnos Version 2)

    Log opened at Wed Aug 10 14:34:16 ART 2016

    Copyright (c) 2016 CA. All Rights Reserved.




    but in runtime the IntroscopeAgent.MathClientAgent.log show me this error


    8/10/16 04:00:52 PM ART [ERROR] [IntroscopeAgent.Agent] IntervalHeartbeat.execute threw executing: AutoTracing counter resetter

      at java.lang.Thread.run(Thread.java:745)


    and the node doesn't appear in treeview in Investigator, and I don't have any clue about it.


    Any suggestion will be appreciate.


    Thanks in advance.-

    Hi, it would help to have the autoprobe and agent log uploaded here.


    Do you have intelligent.pbd loading?

    I really don´t know how to check if  intelligent.pbd is loading, is it placed in IntroscopeAgent.profile? and in the other hand I don't find how to upload the logs and they are so long for copy here

    If you use the advanced editor link you will see "Attach" on the bottom right hand corner.


    To see if intelligent.pbd is being instrumented, look at the directives in your agent profile and see from there (generally a typical or full pbl) if its being added in.

    You don't put the class you want to identify in quotes, so you should change from

    IdentifyClassAs: "com.client.math.MathWSClient" customMathClient




    IdentifyClassAs: com.client.math.MathWSClient customMathClient


    I would expect you are getting a general AutoProbe failure, and when AutoProbe fails you get errors about smart/intelligent instrumentation because if you don't have AutoProbe running at all, you can't do smart instrumentation either

    Check the agent log for messages about "Invalid settings" for AutoProbe, it should point to something.

    As Matt said, if you can upload IntroscopeAgent and AutoProbe log, we can take a look.

    Ok people, thanks for your support, finally I found the error, I had put the .pbd in hotdeploy and also too in agent profile, I guess it makes a colission so at first I removed pbd file from hotdeploy and restart server and it worked, then I removed from agent profile and put it on hotdeploy and it work too, so it can't stay in both places at same time.

    Thanks again.-
