Description:

Over time, IBM Websphere PMI Time Metrics may stop reporting. The problem affects all of the Time metrics under PMI. The particular ones effected are:

 	
 	-connectionPoolModule --> JDBCtime, UseTime, WaitTime     
 	-j2cModule ---> UseTime, WaitTime  	
 	-threadPoolModule ---> ActiveTime  	
 	-servletsessionsModule --> LifeTime  	
 	-bean ->MethodResponseTime 

All other enabled PMI metrics are reporting as expected. The metrics will come back as soon as you restart the JVM. However, the metrics do not begin reporting data when activity is put through the server including database activity which would trigger the connection pool module.

Solution:

add

introscope.agent.metricAging.metricExclude.ignore.1=*Time

to the agent profile and restart the application.
