What's new

Hash mapping disabled for instance names

In this release, the hash mapping for instance names is disabled by default in all the configured environments. With this enhancement, the complete path of the parameter is displayed in the PATROL Console. You can enable hash mapping for specific environments by using JVM arguments.

Upgrade impact

Consider the following to retain the environment history and to ensure a smooth upgrade from version 3.0.10 to version 3.1.00 of BMC PATROL for IBM WebSphere Application Server.

If you want to use hash code paths in the instance names, BMC recommends that you, as the database administrator, add the -DlongInstanceMapping=false JVM argument to the respective environment. To add JVM arguments, perform the following step:

  • Right-click the Environment name >  KM commands > KM Administration > Define JVM Arguments option and enter the argument. 


  • Set the value to /PMW/WebSphere/<<environment name>>/jvmArgs pconfig variable
