Telemetry

To help prioritize features and work on improving Skaffold, we collect anonymized Skaffold usage data. Usage data does not include any argument values or personal information.

You are opted-in by default and you can opt-out at any time with the skaffold config command. In order to disable sending usage data, run the following command after you have installed Skaffold:

skaffold config set --global collect-metrics false

The breakdown of data we collect is as follows:

    Example

    skaffold dev -v trace --port-forward --cache-artifacts=false --filename=./skaffold.yaml
    

    Running the above in the microservices example after a couple of builds/deploys results in the following metrics being collected:

    [{
        "ExitCode": 0,
        "BuildArtifacts": 3,
