This page provides information on Telemetry for the V-Ray for Maya Improvement Program.

 

Overview


The V-Ray improvement program is based on telemetry. It allows Chaos Group to track general V-Ray usage statistics as well as automatically collect crash information. The type of information that will be collected includes some parameter values that people use most often, which will allow Chaos Group to optimize and improve V-Ray's performance. No personal identifiable information, scenes, assets, or materials will be collected.

The collected data is sent when Maya is closed, and is stored locally in text files. For Windows the files can be found in the folder C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\ChaosGroup\telemetry. For Linux and macOS the files can be found in the home directory of the current user: ${HOME}/.ChaosGroup/telemetry/The collected data is viewable with a text editor.
