Telemetry is a feature that allows data collection. This is being used to collect performance metrics and other information about how Firefox performs in the wild.
Client-side, this consists of:
- data collection, e.g. in histograms and scalars
- assembling Telemetry pings with the general information and the data payload
- sending them to the server and local ping retention
Note: the data collection policy documents the process and requirements that are applied here.
