To enhance our service, GreptimeDB collects certain telemetry data. This includes information like the GreptimeDB version, the number of nodes, the operating system used, the environment's architecture, and similar technical details. However, we respect your privacy and make sure not to collect any user-specific data, which entails database names, table names, query content, and the like.
This telemetry collection can easily be managed according to your preferences. You may choose to enable or disable it through the configurations. Your experience and privacy are our top priority.
What data will be collected?
The usage details that get shared might change over time. These changes (if any) will be announced in release notes.
When telemetry is enabled, GreptimeDB will collect the following information every 0.5 hours:
- GreptimeDB version
- GreptimeDB build git hash
- The operating system of the machine on which GreptimeDB is running(Linux, macOS, etc.)
- Architecture of the machine on which GreptimeDB is running(x86_64, arm64, etc.)
- Mode in which GreptimeDB is running(standalone, distributed)
- A randomly generated installation ID
- The number of datanodes in the GreptimeDB cluster
How to disable telemetry?
Telemetry will be enabled by default starting from v0.4.0. You can disable it by configuring the settings.
enable_telemetry in the standalone config file to
# Node running mode, "standalone" or "distributed". mode = "standalone" # Whether to enable greptimedb telemetry, true by default. enable_telemetry = false
Or configure it by the environment variable
GREPTIMEDB_STANDALONE__ENABLE_TELEMETRY=false on startup.
enable_telemetry in the metasrv config file to
# metasrv config file # Whether to enable greptimedb telemetry, true by default. enable_telemetry = false
Or set the environment variable
GREPTIMEDB_METASRV__ENABLE_TELEMETRY=false on startup.
