The Summary Data NSE (sent by the Metering Agent) is missing ending XML tags. The bottom of the incorrect NSE's will appear as below:
[Summary Data in XML in this part of the NSE]
[Missing XML tags]


This issue has been resolved in Application Metering 6.1 Service Pack 2 (build 6.1.32) , available from the Solution Center.

Before upgrading, please be sure to backup your Notification Server database and make note of your Application Metering Solution configuration. After the upgrade is completed, you will need to change the solution configuration back to your settings. Lastly, you will need to deploy the newer Application Metering Agent to the clients.
