Error description

  • When migrating from WebSphere Application Server 6.1, the PMI
    metrics logging option enableLog="false" is set to
    enableLog="true" if the traceLevel= option is not "NONE"
    
    Prior to migration , the primr.xmlfile for the 6.1 version and
    the version being migrated to show similar entry to:
    
      <pmirm:PMIRequestMetrics xmi:id="PMIRequestMetrics_1"
    dynamicEnable="true" enable="false" enableARM="false"
    traceLevel="HOPS" enableLog="false" armType="ARM40"
    armTransactionFactory="" armCallback="">
    ...
    
    After migration, the post migration pmirm.xml contains:
    
      <pmirm:PMIRequestMetrics xmi:id="PMIRequestMetrics_1"
    dynamicEnable="true" enable="false" enableARM="false"
    traceLevel="HOPS" enableLog="true" armType="ARM40"
    armTransactionFactory="" armCallback="">
    

Local fix

  • Manually modify the entry in the PMIRM.xml file to
    enableLog="false"

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: After running WASPostUpgrade            *
    *                      Performance Monitoring Infrastructure   *
    *                      (PMI) metrics logging becomes enabled   *
    *                      when in the previous version it was     *

    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    After running WASPostUpgrade, the enableLog attribute of the
    PMIRequestMetrics tag in pmirm.xml is set to true even though
    the same attribute in the previous release is set to false.
    

Problem conclusion

  • We now make sure that upon migration if a value is set for
    enableLog that it is honored and not replaced.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 7.0.0.31, 8.0.0.8, and 8.5.5.2.  Please refer to the
    Recommended Updatespage for delivery information:
    http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?rs=180&uid=swg27004980
    

Temporary fix

  • Manually fix the enableLog value back to false if it was
    previously set to false in the pmirm.xml file in the new
    version of WebSphere Application Server.
