Appendix E: Collection of Anonymous Data

This solution includes an option to send anonymous usage data to AWS. We use this data to better understand how customers use this solution to improve the services and products that we offer. When enabled, the following information is collected and sent to AWS each time the Instance Scheduler AWS Lambda function runs:

  • Solution ID: The AWS solution identifier

  • Unique ID (UUID): Randomly generated, unique identifier for each solution deployment

  • Timestamp: Data-collection timestamp

  • Instance Data: Count of the state and type of instances that are managed by the Instance Scheduler in each AWS Region

    Example data:

    • Running: {t2.micro: 2}, {m3.large:2}

    • Stopped: {t2.large: 1}, {m3.xlarge:3}

    • Resized: {t2.large-t2.small:3}

The following information is collected and sent to AWS at stack creation or deletion:

  • Solution ID: The AWS solution identifier

  • Unique ID (UUID): Randomly generated, unique identifier for each solution deployment

  • Timestamp: Data-collection timestamp

  • Stack Version: The version of the stack that is created or deleted

  • Status: The status of the stack (stack_created or stack_deleted)

  • Region: The region where the stack is deployed

Note that AWS will own the data gathered via this survey. Data collection will be subject to the AWS Privacy Policy. To opt out of this feature, set the Send anonymous usage data parameter to No.
