The telemetry service of contentACCESS permanently collects data from the

  1. contentACCESS system as a whole,
  2. email archive and
  3. file archive jobs

and makes a record of the collected data. The data changes are summarized into telemetry graphs. These graphs give a simple and quick overview about the actual data usage of the last 10 days. The graphs can be viewed on the Statistics page, which is reachable by navigating to System ⇒ Services ⇒ Statistics on the ribbon. The values displayed on this page are permanently updated by the telemetry job, which runs and collects the necessary data every night between 1 AM to 2 AM. If you want to see the actual usage data immediately, then you can run the telemetry updater, which will actualize it for you immediately.

The telemetry job’s configuration page can be opened by clicking on the “update telemetry” option. Only a user with manage tenant rights has access to the telemetry job. With clicking the option the telemetry job is automatically triggered, too.


A new scheduler may be created and resource settings may be changed to the telemetry job on this page. The job can be started/stopped or activated/deactivated from the same page’s status bar, too.
