[edit] Turn off the Usage Data Collection

While the Usage Data Collector is no longer supported, it is still running on older Eclipse installs. There is an option to turn off collection on the "Usage Data Collector" preferences page that should work. We have heard reports, however, that this setting is sometimes ignored (we've been unable to replicate this).

To completely disable the Usage Data Collector:

  • Navigate to the "General > Startup and Shutdown" preference page;
  • Untick the checkboxes next to the two "Usage Data Collector" entries; and
  • Click "Apply" or "Ok".
