    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:  Only apply this fix if Intelligent          *
    *                  Management capabilities (see WebSphere      *
    *                  Application Server Information Center for   *

    ****************************************************************
    Intelligent Management which is part of Websphere Application
    Server V8.5.0.0 and later, requires the default PMI counters
    to be enabled. It is not possible to disable PMI or the
    default PMI counters when using Intelligent Management
    capabilities. If no IntelligentManagement capabilities will
    ever be used then the property described in this fix can be
    used to disable Intelligent Management. In turn it will allow
    disabling the PMI Monitoring Infrastructure or default PMI
    counters. Using this cell level property, the PMI setting as
    seen on the console panels will still show that PMI is enabled.
    

Problem conclusion

  • To disable Intelligent Managment after applying this Fix, the
    cell custom Property LargeTopologyOptimization must be
    configured with value false, and the cell restarted.
    
    To configure the cell custom property via the administrative
    console go to System Administration, Cell, Configuration,
    Additional Properties, Custom Properties, and create a new
    entry with Name LargeTopologyOptimization, and Value false.
