Grafana Alloy data collection

By default, Grafana Alloy sends anonymous but uniquely identifiable usage information from your Alloy instance to Grafana Labs. These statistics are sent to

Statistics help Grafana better understand how Alloy is used. This helps us prioritize features and documentation.

The usage information includes the following details:

  • A randomly generated, anonymous, unique ID (UUID).
  • Timestamp of when the UID was first generated.
  • Timestamp of when the report was created (by default, every four hours).
  • The version of Alloy.
  • The operating system Alloy is running on.
  • The system architecture Alloy is running on.
  • A list of enabled components
  • The method used to deploy Alloy, for example Docker, Helm, or a Linux package.

This list may change over time. All newly reported data is documented in the CHANGELOG.

Opt-out of data collection

You can use the -disable-reporting command line flag to disable the reporting and opt-out of the data collection.
