In Zeus 5.1r1 and later, Zeus reports system and platform information on a periodic basis to Zeus. This information is used by the Zeus engineering team to help prioritize future development and to understand which platforms and features are most widely used
The information collected can be split into the following categories:
The collected data is signed to ensure its integrity, before being sent using an HTTP POST to Zeus.
How often is the information sent?
Zeus will send information back to Zeus approximately once per day. If the HTTP POST fails, Zeus will carry on as normal.
The usage information is also included in the Technical Support report that is generated from the Diagnose -> Technical Support UI page.
To view the information: generate a Technical Support report, open it and browse to the support folder. The usagetracking.txt file in that folder contains the information submitted to Zeus on a periodic basis. If the usage tracking feature is disabled, this will be indicated in the file
The usage tracking feature can be disabled by manually appending the following to the ZEUSHOME/Zeus/conf/settings.cfg configuration file:
1. usagetracking!enabled No
If the Zeus is in a cluster you should replicate the configuration across the cluster from the Diagnose page after you have set the configuration key. Disabling the usage tracking feature, either through the configuration key, or if a firewall blocks the request, will have no effect on the operation of Zeus.
