Statistics reporter properties

OpsCenter communicates data about an installed instance back to DataStax for informational purposes. The data is sent in a key-value JSON format.

If your organization prefers disabling transmission of the collected data to DataStax, edit the opscenterd configuration file. Locate the opscenterd.conf file. The location of this file depends on the type of installation:

  • Package installations: /etc/opscenter/opscenterd.conf

  • Tarball installations: install_location/conf/opscenterd.conf

Add the following in opscenterd.conf and restart OpsCenter:
