General usage

Casa sends telemetry data to NRAO by default (starting CASA 5.4.1). This data is anonymous and is used to measure Casa task usage.

You can disable telemetry by adding the following line in ~/.casarc

EnableTelemetry: False

Advanced Options

Telemetry adds log files in the ~/.casa directory and submits the data at Casa startup after a predefined interval. This can be configured in the ~/.casarc file by setting TelemetrySubmitInterval to a desired value in seconds.  The default value is 1 week.

You can change the log file cache directory by setting "TelemetryLogDirectory" in ~/.casarc

You can also configure a maximum Telemetry log usage with "TelemetryLogLimit" (in kilobytes). Casa will check for the logfile size periodically and disable Telemetry when the limit is reached. The check interval can be set with "TelemetryLogSizeInterval" (seconds)

Summary of all available options in .casarc:

TelemetryLogDirectory: /tmp
TelemetryLogLimit: 1650
TelemetryLogSizeInterval: 30
TelemetrySubmitInterval: 20
