Issue:

During the agent startup for the IBM WebSphere JVM, the following message displays multiple times in very short period:

[INFO] [IntroscopeAgent.Agent] AutoProbe has reloaded all directive configuration. This is because a change to a directive configuration file was detected.

This could cause extra agent overhead for CPU and autoprobe logging.

Environment:
All supported APM Releases.
Cause:

After investigation, it was confirmed that WebSphere class redefinition triggered agent directives to be reloaded as per expected behavior.

Resolution:

 To avoid the message, consider disabling deep inheritance. In most cases, this causes no metric loss. If required, make the following change to the agent's profile and restart the JVM.

 introscope.autoprobe.deepinheritance.enabled=false
