This issue is related to defect DE275471 - US309901 : constructor instrumentation broken with latest Oracle and IBM JVM 1.8 SR4 (184.108.40.206), 7 R1 SR4 (220.127.116.11), 7 SR10 FP0 (18.104.22.168)
This problem (ctor instrumentation) will affect the instanceCounter, you should not miss anything except InstanceCounts metrics
You cannot workaround the issue by skipping ctor instrumentation
CA APM Development is working with IBM Support to resolve the issue : PMR# 36599,756
1. Stop the Application Server
2. Open the AGENT_HOME/core/config/IntroscopeAgent.profile, set introscope.autoprobe.constructor.policy=None
3. Start the Application Server
A constructor in Java is a block of code like a method that's called when an instance of an object is created, for more information refer to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Constructor_(object-oriented_programming)
