  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • The RIT Proxy (http/s and tcp) in RTCP's Agent view displays a
    'circle bar' indicating that no statistics are available.  If
    you hover over the icon,  Unknown activity.  Observation
    statistics unavailable.  is in the popup.  We verified
    registration.xml had statistics set to 'on' when starting.  So
    they stopped somehow.  The statisics drop-down also reflects
    'none', but we were able to select 'statistics' from the
    'observation level' for that agent, and the RIT Proxy started
    reporting statistics again. There are screen captures of this
    in the PDF file I sent to IBMers via email.
    
    - the only element worth discussing is whether we should also
    do this for observation level of resources as this has the
    potential to be an ever expanding list of values.
    

Local fix

  • The customer is able to turn it back on manually.

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * In Rational Test Control Panel the observation level for a   *
    * proxy might change without user interaction. Setting the     *
    * statistics initial-state attribute to "on" in a proxy's      *
    * registration.xml file, or changing the observation level     *
    * from the Agents view of Rational Test Control Panel might    *
    * result in the new level being only applied for 24 hours.     *
    * After this time the observations would end                   *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
