Manage anonymous data collection

Akamas collects anonymized usage information on running optimizations, and you can decide at any moment whether to opt-out.

External tracking is managed through the following environment variables:

  • AKAMAS_TRACKER_URL: the target URL for all tracking info.

  • AKAMAS_TRACKING_OPT_OUT: when set to 1, disables anonymous data collection.

Tracking for a running instance can be disabled by executing this simple command in the folder where the Akamas compose file is located:

AKAMAS_TRACKING_OPT_OUT=1 docker-compose up -d

As usual with environment variables, it is strongly suggested to export the desired value to your ~/.bashrc file to ensure persistence.

echo "export AKAMAS_TRACKING_OPT_OUT=1" >> ~/.bashrc
source ~/.bashrc
