How do I enable allocation tracking for core Java Classes?


I am using the Object Instance Tracking feature. When I try to Drill Down on a specific class, I get the following message when I go to the Allocation Tracking tab:


"Allocation Tracking is not enabled for System / core Java classes."


How can I enable allocation tracking for system/core Java classes?



AppDynamics does not track allocation for core Java classes by default. If you want to track all objects, then you can use the following controller property:


  • Access the controller URL with allowObjectActivityTraceOnAllObjects=true. For example:


Note that tracking allocation for the core Java classes may cause high overhead. Use this at your own risk.


We do not turn this on by default because it causes a lot more tracking and therefore much higher overhead on the agent side.
