Local repository for telemetry data

You can review local copies of the data that Veritas collects on each system with telemetry enabled. You can review local copies of the telemetry information that Veritas collects at the following locations:

  • UNIX and Linux:



  • Windows:



Within both the telemetry and dataset directories, there are additional subdirectories in the format telemetry_YYYYmmddHHMMxxx. The data that is transmitted to Veritas is in each of these subdirectories.


The second Windows location (..\global\telemetry\dataset) may be different for Windows clusters. This location is based on the registry entries that are outside of where telemetry looks for data.

While all telemetry information on the local system is stored in human readable format, the data has passed through the MD5 hash algorithm. Any unique customer information is obfuscated when collected.


The local repository is empty if the local disk is more than 85% full. Data sets are pruned automatically to avoid consuming too much disk space.
