Seeing many of the the following message in the MQ log file:
3/12/18 01:08:08 PM EDT [ERROR] [com.wily.powerpack.websphereMQ.agent.MQMonitor.MBMonitor.MBTreeUtil] Metric_Name_Is_Badly_Formed[WebSphere Message Broker |paa11|JKLMNO1|Execution Groups|QEGB11|Message Flows|com.trp.bny.SimpleParse_MainFlow|Node Statistics||]
I get these messages every 20 seconds, so the log rolls over quickly. I upgraded to 10.3 recently and did not see these before.
APM agent not recognizing “---“ in node names
The Customer's MQ Team changed the event logging to log4j.
This resolved the issue The monitor names are created by default based on the node names. Node names can have “---“ in their names and even the event monitors.
So the APM agent was unable to recognize the event monitor names associated with “---“.
Starting in APM 10.7 SP1 will be able to to recognize the event monitor names associated with “---“.
