A.3 How the Micro Focus Server Receives the Data

The telemetry server requests (pulls) the data from the telemetry agents. The data is stored at /var/opt/novell/telemetry/data/.

A unique GUID is generated for the agent when first time the agent sends the data to the server. By default, the agent communicates through 8000 port to push the data to the server. After the server receives the data successfully, the agent deletes the data from its location.

The telemetry server transfers the data to the Micro Focus server. If the transfer is unsuccessful, the system attempts to send it again during the next weekly cycle. No attempts to send the data is made outside of the weekly cycles.

The data is not encrypted because no sensitive or identifying information is included.
