By default, Cortex sends anonymous usage data to Cortex Labs.

What data is collected?

If telemetry is enabled, events and errors are collected. Each time you run a command an event will be sent with a randomly generated unique CLI ID and the name of the command. For example, if you run cortex get, Cortex Labs will receive an event of the structure {id: 1234, command: "get"}. In addition, the operator sends heartbeats that include cluster metrics like the types of instances running in your cluster.

How do I opt out?

If you'd like to disable telemetry, modify your ~/.cortex/cli.yaml file (or create it if it doesn't exist) and add telemetry: false before spinning up your cluster.
