This article gives a brief summary of the MarkLogic Telemetry feature available in MarkLogic Server version 9

What is Telemetry used for?

Telemetry is a communication channel between customer's MarkLogic Server instances and the MarkLogic Support team. When enabled, historical configuration, system log and performance data is efficiently collected for immediate access by the Support team who can begin working on your support incident. Having immediate access to this critical system data will often lead to quicker diagnostics and resolution of your logged support incidents. 

When Telemetry is enabled, MarkLogic Server collects data locally and periodically uploads it encrypted and anonymised to a secure cloud storage. Data collected locally follows MarkLogic encryption settings and can be reviewed at any time. Telemetry has very low impact on the server performance as it does not require any communication between nodes and it does not depend on any database or index settings.
