Internal Usage Statistics

Internal Usage Statistics

We periodically collect usage data from instances of Gloo and glooctl. The details of this collection can be found here. Briefly, the data that is collected includes:

glooctl records a unique ID in the .soloio config directory (see this page in our docs for more info on where that directory can be found) in a file named signature. This contains no personally-identifying information; it is just a random UUID used to associate multiple usage records with the same source. As with the rest of this data, it will not be created or recorded if this statistics collection is disabled.

Usage statistics collection can be disabled in Gloo by setting the DISABLE_USAGE_REPORTING environment variable on the gloo pod. This can be done at install time by setting the helm value gloo.deployment.disableUsageStatistics to true. For glooctl, setting the disableUsageReporting key to true in its config file serves the same purpose. See the docs page referenced above for more information on the config file for glooctl.
