Barracuda CloudGen Firewall

Telemetry Data

  • Last updated on

To be able to continuously update and improve frequently used features based on real-world data, the Barracuda CloudGen WAN appliances send performance and usage data to the Barracuda telemetry servers. After collecting data, the CloudGen WAN appliance starts one attempt to update the telemetry data via an HTTPS connection. If the connection to the server fails, no further attempts are made until the next day. A copy of all parameters sent to the telemetry server is logged every time an update is initiated in /var/phion/preserve/telemetry/report.txt.
