ITM Agent Insights: Tivoli Portal does not show data for all Agent Builder JMX MBeans

Ths blog will help to resolve issues when the Tivoli Portal does not show data for all Agent Builder JMX MBeans.
This issue can occur if the operating system selected for the individual attribute is not compatible with the operating system the agent is installed on. For example, you can individually specify the operating system for each attribute in Agent Builder in the lower section of the JMX Attribute Group Information screen. If one attribute is set for 'Linux 2.6', while another is set for 'All Windows', and the agent is installed in a Windows environment, data will only be returned for the attribute that is set for All Windows.
This is not limited to just JMX agents created with agent builder. When you view the logs with tracing, you will only notice that a query is run for the compatible operating system. However, viewing Performance Object Status for that agent in TEP should reveal the Query Name of all attributes where data will be requested. If Query Names of the attributes are not in the list, review the agent builder project to verify that the correct operating system was selected for that attribute.
I hope you have found this blog useful in resolving an issue of no data showing on the TEP for your JMX agent.
