Caught exception that is logged as info treated as an Error

Hello,

 

My team has a scenario where a frequently used API catches an Exception and logs it as an info (using log4j2).  AppD is showing this as a transaction error each time it occurs, although this is a benign exception.  My understanding was that exceptions are only treated as business transaction errors if they are uncaught or logged with level ERROR or FATAL.

 

Are there any other situations that would cause caught/info logged exceptions to be treated as errors?  The exception in question is a RuntimeException.  Do caught RuntimeExceptions still get treated as a business transaction error?

 

Regards,

Jeremy

Re: Caught exception that is logged as info treated as an Error

Exceptions that are thrown through instrumentation (i.e. thrown within a backend call and handled by the application code) will get detected like this.

 

You can configure the agent to ignore certain exceptions if required.

Re: Caught exception that is logged as info treated as an Error

In this scenario, it was not thrown by a backend call.  The code in question is contained entirely through the java service/application.

 

I plan to configure our Error/Exception detection to ignore this, but I wanted to validate that this is expected behavior.
