Issue/Introduction

Trying to monitor Websphere MDM Application V 11.6 Using APM Agent 10.7.0.197

Not able to get the metrics off from MDM Application. 

Able to get other Websphere Metrics but MDM. 

 

Cause

Websphere MDM application is not tested or certified with APM Agents. 

Engineering provided a workaround /custom instrumentation.

Environment

 Loaded file from /IBM/wily/core/config/IntroscopeAgent.profile
