Is there any documentation on how to install CA APM 9.7.1 agents on WebSphere 8.5.5 Liberty Profile?
Can we use the same installation document as the one provided for 9.7.x?
What about customizations? Anything special needed?
I managed it to work by adding the following line in the Set JAVA_PARAMS_QUOTED section of server.bat:
set JAVA_AGENT_QUOTED=!JAVA_AGENT_QUOTED! -javaagent:"C:\IBM\wlp-javaee7-126.96.36.199\wlp\wily\Agent.jar" -Dcom.wily.introscope.agentProfile="C:\IBM\wlp-javaee7-188.8.131.52\wlp\wily\core\config\IntroscopeAgent.profile"
Yes the APM 9.7 wiki documentation applies to all 9.7.x releases.
For WebSphere 8.5.5. Liberty Profile, from IBM web page "About WebSphere Liberty" (https://developer.ibm.com/wasdev/websphere-liberty/) a Liberty instance could have up to 40% Apache code:
Therefore depending on what components you have installed maximising OOTB Liberty metrics should be more in line with the Apache code/classes that are instrumented in the agent pbd's for Tomcat referenced by the Tomcat agent profile. You could run a test to compare the Tomcat agent profile with the WebSphere agent profile to compare what extra metrics you get.
Hope this helps.
However, I am facing the following problem:
1- It looks like there is already another javaagent parameter in the server startup: set JAVA_AGENT_QUOTED="-javaagent:!WLP_INSTALL_DIR!\bin\tools\ws-javaagent.jar"
2- If I substitute it to " -javaagent:C:\IBM\wlp-javaee7-184.108.40.206\wlp\wily\Agent.jar -Dcom.wily.introscope.agentProfile=C:\IBM\wlp-javaee7-220.127.116.11\wlp\wily\core\config\IntroscopeAgent.profile", I am getting an error: Error” Cpould not find or load main class -javaagent:C:\IBM\wlp-javaee7-18.104.22.168\wlp\wily\Agent.jar -Dcom.wily.introscope.agentProfile=C:\IBM\wlp-javaee7-22.214.171.124\wlp\wily\core\config\IntroscopeAgent.profile.

Glad to hear that
Ii looks like your original double quotes before the -javaagent JVM option meant that it was not being correctly interpreted as an option.
What do you mean?
What's the implications in this case?
Maybe I didn't express myself very well, no, there's no other vendor agent installed.
