Question:
The default value of the property introscope.agent.reduceAgentMemoryOverhead is different from the description of IntroscopeAgent.profile in the manual.
Which is the default for introscope.agent.reduceAgentMemoryOverhead?
The manual default is true.
The description of IntroscopeAgent.profile defaults to false.
Answer:
The description of IntroscopeAgent.profile is correct.
----IntroscopeAgent.profile----
############################### 
#Agent Memory Overhead Setting 

# ======================= 
# Set to true if you want to attempt to reduce the agent memory overhead introduced by architectural improvements to the 8.x Agent.
# Increased Agent memory overhead only occurs in certain extreme cases.
# The trade-off for the possible lower memory consumption is a possible increase in response time.  
# Each application is unique and will experience different variations in Memory vs. Response Time trade-offs.
# This property is set to false by default and out of the box is commented out. This is not a hot property 
# and the managed application needs to be restarted for this flag to take effect. 
#introscope.agent.reduceAgentMemoryOverhead=true 


The description of the manual defaults to true, but the default is false.

Agent Memory Overhead Property
Significant agent memory overhead only occurs in certain extreme cases. The typical trade-off for lowering memory consumption is a potential increase in response time. However, each application is unique and the trade-off between memory usage and response time can vary depending on each application.
introscope.agent.reduceAgentMemoryOverhead
This property specifies the agent configuration to use. Uncomment if you want to reduce the agent memory overhead.
Values: true or false

Default: true  <==== false is correct

Example: introscope.agent.reduceAgentMemoryOverhead=true
