Telemetry Data

  • Last updated on

To allow us to continuously update and improve the features frequently used by our customers based on real-world data, the Barracuda NextGen Firewall F-Series sends performance and usage data to the Barracuda telemetry servers. Sending statistics is opt-out for new or freshly installed NextGen Firewalls and opt-in for updated firewalls. The F-Series collects data and then starts one attempt to update the telemetry data via an HTTPS connection. If the the connection to the update servers fails, no further attempts are made until the next day. A copy of all parameters sent to the telemetry servers is logged every time an update is initiated. The Barracuda NextGen Control Center only sends data collected on box level. No data from the Control Center layer is collected.
