Share data in the Machine Learning Toolkit

When the Machine Learning Toolkit is deployed on Splunk Enterprise, the Splunk platform sends anonymized usage data to Splunk Inc. ("Splunk") to help improve the MLTK in future releases. For information about how to opt in or out, and how the data is collected, stored, and governed, see Share data in Splunk Enterprise.

What data is collected

The Splunk Machine Learning Toolkit collects the following basic usage information:

Component Description Example
