JBoss EAP 5 web application context metrics are not being collected in JBoss ON 3.1.1 due to a NullPointerException in WebApplicationContextComponent.getValues

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • Currently Active Sessions metric is no longer collected beginning in JBoss Operations Network (ON) 3.1.1.
  • From the agent log we could find the following ERROR message:

    ERROR [ResourceContainer.invoker.daemon-1172] (org.rhq.plugins.jbossas5.WebApplicationContextComponent)- Failed to collect metric 'activeSessions' for {JBossAS5}Embedded Web Application Context Resource with key localhost.
