The Usage Data Collector (UDC) is included in the packages available for download from the Eclipse Downloads page. The UDC collects information about how individuals are using the Eclipse platform. This information is periodically uploaded to servers hosted by The Eclipse Foundation. The intent is to use this data to help committers and organizations better understand how developers are using Eclipse.
