Error description

  • When setting the runtime trace on a nodeagent, that tracespec
    appears on the runtime tab of all processes.  Also, when
    enabling the runtime trace with wsadmin, the administrative
    console does not reflect the new trace specified while the
    SystemOut.log indicates that the new trace spec was set.

    *                      Detail Levels" panel, the new           *

    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:  The tracespec has been taken into effect    *
    *                  in the runtime, but is not displayed        *
    *                  accurately in the administrative console.   *
    *                  You may verify the current runtime          *
    *                  tracespec by either one of the following    *
    *                  options:                                    *
    *                  1. check the SystemOut.log for the latest   *
    *                  entry indicating the new tracespec:         *

    *                  2. Invoke wsadmin to get the current        *
    *                  runtime tracespec.  Here is a sample        *
    *                  wsadmin invocation using jython, where      *

Problem conclusion

  • APAR PM39910 has corrected the "runtime" tab to correctly
    reflect the runtime tracespec after it has been modified by
    the user.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 7.0.0.19.  Please refer to the Recommended
    Updates page for delivery information:
