AutoProbe cannot dynamically instrument the tracers configured with SubstituteClass directives. For example, the tracer for SocketTracing have been configured with the following:
SubstituteClassIfFlagged: SocketTracing java.net.Socket com.wily.introscope.agent.probe.net.ManagedSocket
This is the reason why you cannot dynamically change the SocketTracing by commenting / uncommenting TurnOn: SocketTracing.
You can say the same to UDPTracing as well. In fact, if you look into java2.pbd, there are a few tracers using SubstituteClass. They require a restart if you toggle it on/off in toggles pbd:
Other tracers as most in j2ee.pbd do not use substitute class, and therefore can be dynamically instrumented.
