Issue/Introduction

During the agent startup for the IBM WebSphere JVM, the following message displays multiple times in very short period:

[INFO] [IntroscopeAgent.Agent] AutoProbe has reloaded all directive configuration. This is because a change to a directive configuration file was detected.

This could cause extra agent overhead for CPU and autoprobe logging.

Cause

After investigation, it was confirmed that WebSphere class redefinition triggered agent directives to be reloaded as per expected behavior.

Environment

All supported APM Releases.

Resolution

 To avoid the message, consider disabling deep inheritance. In most cases, this causes no metric loss. If required, make the following change to the agent's profile and restart the JVM.

 introscope.autoprobe.deepinheritance.enabled=false
