The Agent “Build and Release� metric is not being displayed in the investigator


Article ID: 5142

CA Application Performance Management Agent (APM / Wily / Introscope) INTROSCOPE


The Agent “Build and Release” metric is not being populated in the investigator but other string metrics such as EM Host or EM port are present.


All agent releases


The “Build and Release” metric is created using the Supportability-Agent.jar extension and so if this jar is not accessible then the metric will not be populated.


1.   Open the IntroscopeAgent.profile file


2.    Locate the property and check it’s value (default value is ../ext)


3.    Verify that the Supportability-Agent.jar file is in that location. If not either move the file there or correct the property for the agent extensions folder


Additional Information

Note that as this metric is a string metric it is not persisted and so if the Build and Release is visible in the investigator but shows a value “String Viewer: no data” that is expected behavior if the investigator is not in Live mode and not a result of the problem described above.
