Attempted to create metric with a conflicting type


Article ID: 212921


Updated On:


CA Application Performance Management (APM / Wily / Introscope)


Infrastructure Agent Release (Build 990044) - MQ and IIB10 Monitor.

Introscope Enterprise Manager Release (Build 992906)


I see the following in the the MQ Monitor log file

[ERROR] [IntroscopeAgent.InfrastructureAgent] Attempted to create metric IBM Integration Node|...|Resource Statistics|File|summary:BytesRead with a conflicting type.

Is this error something I should worry about?



Release : 10.7.0

Component : APM Agents


The error means that there are duplicate tracers.. 

The Investigator will show the first one (Bytes Read) successfully. And the second one (duplicate of the first metric) is causing the error

Please see this community post for more details []


To resolve, go through your Autoprobe/pbd files looking for duplicates of that metric. 

Should you worry?

- You have duplicate metrics. The first shows the metrics and the second shows an error. So the second metric is not harming anything other than taking Investigator space with a useless metric. 

Additional Information

The metric disappeared . So not investigated any further.
