Seeing these repeated messages in agent AutoProbe.log during instrumentation when tracer /com/wily/introscope/agent/trace/CrossProcessCorrelationEjbTracer is invoked:

Duplicate tracer found @ /u00/agents/javaagent/wily/core/config/j2ee.pbd; line 312 of tracer @ /u00/agents/javaagent/wily/core/config/apm-common.pbd; line 206

        ejbCreate:0                        inserted method tracer object allocation: com/wily/introscope/agent/trace/CrossProcessCorrelationEjbTracer

APM 9.x, 10.x

Line 312 of j2ee.pbd is: TraceComplexMethodsIfFlagged: MessageDrivenBean3Tracing CorTracer "CorId"

Line 206 of apm-common.pbd is: TraceComplexMethodsIfFlagged: MessageDrivenBean3Tracing CorPreTracer "CorId"


In j2ee.pbd ("EJB Tracer Class Mappings") CrossProcessCorrelationEjbTracer is mapped to Tracer name CorTracer:

SetTracerClassMapping: CorTracer com.wily.introscope.agent.trace.CrossProcessCorrelationEjbTracer 

In apm-common.pbd ("Correlation pre-tracers") CrossProcessCorrelationEjbTracer is mapped to Tracer name CorPreTracer:

SetTracerClassMapping: CorPreTracer com.wily.introscope.agent.trace.CrossProcessCorrelationEjbTracer 


The messages can be ignored and just indicate that the same probe CrossProcessCorrelationEjbTracer has been mapped twice to tracer group MessageDrivenBean3Tracing via the different tracer names CorTracer & CorPreTracer.

Additional Information:

The exact line numbers and tracer mappings in j2ee.pbd & apm-common.pbd may vary across APM releases e.g. Community thread:

Duplicate tracer found @ D:\wily\introscope\wily\core\config\j2ee.pbd; line 266 of tracer @ D:\wily\introscope\wily\core\config\apm-common.pbd; line 201
