Issue/Introduction

There are too many metrics under the MQ agents branches in the Investigator tree, most of them not needed. How to reduce or filter out them?

Cause

The out-of-the-box configuration may have metrics not needed for certain customers, even when using the level known as typical. 

Environment

Release : 10.7.0

Component : Integration with APM

Resolution

These are the recommended approaches:

1- From the Workstation Investigator, right click on the unneeded branches and select the option Shutoff. This will save a list of all "hidden metrics" under config/shutoff and will not be visible in the metric browser.

2- Edit each pbd file from the agent side and comment out those unneeded entries.
