Description:

A cause and possible solution to the error message: "[ERROR] [IntroscopeAgent.Agent] starting method tracer actual trace for ..."

Solution:

The error message looks like below :

"[ERROR] [IntroscopeAgent.Agent] Exception starting method tracer actual trace for oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleCallableStatement.execute"
"[ERROR] [IntroscopeAgent.Agent] Exception finishing method tracer for oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleCallableStatement.execute"
"[ERROR] [IntroscopeAgent.Agent] Exception starting method tracer actual trace for com.ibm.mq.jms.MQMessageConsumer.receive"

One possible cause is this misconfiguration in the Introscope agent profile:

introscope.autoprobe.directivesFile=websphere-typical.pbl,hotdeploy
introscope.agent.configuration.old=true

The issue is due to the following situation: Legacy mode is not in use, but introscope.agent.configuration.old=true is set.

A possible solution is to do the following:

  1. Set the following, if legacy mode is not in use:

    introscope.autoprobe.directivesFile=websphere-typical.pbl,hotdeploy
    introscope.agent.configuration.old=false

  2. Restart the Introscope agent.

  3. See if the error goes away after the change.
