EMDK For Android - 6.9

Overview

The Analytics Manager (AnalyticsMgr) controls data collection on Zebra devices running Android. Data is organized and collected according to feature groups and individual metrics within those groups. The AnalyticsMgr controls which data metrics are collected, how often and under what conditions, and whether collected data is stored on the device or in the Zebra Cloud.

Use of the Analytics Manager indicates acceptance of the Zebra End User License Agreement.

Central to Zebra Analytics is the Analytics Engine, which collects information about the operation and health of a device and its battery, radios and other components. Such data can be used to detect devices in need of maintenance, are vulnerable to a security threat, or require other attention or preventative action to maintain optimal performance and avoid failures.

Main Functionality

  • Enable/disable data collection by the Analytics Engine
  • Enable/disable ability of device user or app to change data collection setting
  • Set data collection thresholds for individual metrics
  • Control whether data is stored on the device or in the Zebra Cloud
  • Automatically clear on-device data when Analytics Engine is disabled
  • Collect usage data on Bluetooth, NFC and Wi-Fi features
  • Collect device-drop and other ruggedness info
  • Collect data on a custom (user-defined) feature
  • Limit self-update to Wi-Fi connections
  • Allow other device apps to use the AnalyticsMgr cloud transport mechanism
  • Control collection of detailed data metrics in these groups:
    • Battery and CPU Status
    • GPS Information
    • System Information
    • WLAN Performance
    • WWAN Performance
  • Control the frequency of data collection by group:
    • Never
    • Low (infrequent)
    • Medium (moderate frequency)
    • High (very often)
    • Custom interval (in minutes)

Data Analytics State

This is the On/Off switch for the Analytics Engine, which performs data collection on the device, when enabled. Enabling the Analytics Engine also launches the Elemez B2M client, which provides cloud transportation services for data collected on the device (See Enable File/Events Upload and Transport Method). Access to this parameter can be blocked with the Data Analytics Usage (EnableDAEToggle) parameter.

Use of the Analytics Manager indicates acceptance of the Zebra End User License Agreement.

Clear Data

Controls whether collected data stored on the device by the Analytics Engine and/or AnalyticsMgr CSP is cleared (erased). This function is available only when the Analytics Engine is disabled.

Clearing saved data can be useful when establishing a baseline for data collection during a specific period of time or under certain usage scenarios. For example, if a device has been out of contact for a period of time, clearing "old" data can avoid reports containing data that's no longer relevant or valuable. Similarly, it might sometimes be useful to clear previous data on a device just before running a test of some kind to ensure that only the data for that test is captured.

Clear Data has no effect on Analytics data stored in the cloud.

Feature Switch

Used to select device Feature(s) about which to collect usage information. For each enabled Feature, usage data is collected and reported once per 24-hour period. Such data can include the number of times a device has been dropped from a minimum height of three feet, occurrences of an application not responding (ANR) and the frequency of access to features such as Bluetooth, NFC and Wi-Fi.

This parameter also can limit updates of the AnalyticsMgr CSP and Analytics Engine to Wi-Fi connections, and allow other apps on the device to use the Analytics Manager infrastructure to upload data to the Zebra Cloud. Prior to any transport, data to be uploaded is encrypted with an RSA-AES hybrid and compressed using gzip. The Custom field permits a user-built data collection agent from 1-64 characters to be specified.

Group Action

Controls whether to configure data collection by the Analytics Engine on all metrics groups, or on one or more individual groups. When configuring for all groups, only the frequency of data collection can be configured. Select "Configure Levels for a Single Group" to enable fine-grained data collection on individual metrics. When a single Group Name is selected, that group's configurable metrics will become available.

Metrics groups are configured separately; the setting of one group has no affect on others. For example, the Analytics Manager in one instance could be configured to enable collection of WWAN Performance metrics while other groups are instructed to retain previously configured settings using the "Do not change" command. At a later time, the CSP could be called upon to collect GPS Performance metrics with all other groups given the "Do not change" command. This scenario would allow collection of both WWAN and GPS Performance metrics. Unless explicitly changed, any previously configured settings are retained.

Parm Name: GroupAction

Option Name Description Note Requires
0 Do not change This value (or the absence of this parm from the XML) will cause no change to which groups of metrics are collected by the Analytics Engine or how often they are collected; any previously selected setting will be retained.

MX: 4.3+

Android API: 19+

1 Configure Levels for Multiple Groups Controls the frequency (i.e. every 10 minutes) of data collection for all metrics in a group. Each group can have its own frequency, but all selected metrics in a group must be collected at the same frequency.

MX: 4.3+

Android API: 19+

2 Configure Levels for a Single Group Controls selection of individual metrics within a group to be collected. The metrics within each group are configured independently of other groups, and not all metrics need be collected within in a group. Metrics collected in a single group will be governed by that group's frequency, but each metric can be assigned a unique collection threshold, which can selectively include or exclude it from reports based on its collected data. (See "Condition" for details).

MX: 5.1+

Android API: 19+

Group Name

Selects the Group Name for collection of detailed metrics. The Analytics Engine can collect detailed metrics on individual feature groups as identified by the Group Names listed below.

When selecting a single group for data collection, a list of the metrics on which data can be collected becomes available. Data collection for each metric can be turned on or off, and each can be assigned its own condition (or threshold) that determines whether data is collected on that metric according to the frequency selected for the group. For example, an organization might wish to begin collecting data about device batteries only after a given battery's charge cycles have exceeded a number specified as optimal for maximum battery performance. Once reached, data collection will begin for that battery at the interval selected for that feature group.

The selected frequency for a single group applies to all metrics in the group. For example, if a 30-minute interval is selected for Smart Battery, data will be collected every 30 minutes for each enabled metric in the Smart Battery group, provided that metric has met its individual threshold (if any).

Android API: 19+

Condition

Determines whether data will always be collected for the metric (Unconditional) or will be collected only when a user-defined Threshold (Condition) has been satisfied. In either case, data will be collected at the frequency selected for the Group Name under which the metric is listed. When a threshold is in place, data will be collected at the group frequency only after the threshhold has been satisfied.

For example, if an organization wishes to begin collecting data about device batteries only after its batteries have exceeded the optimal number of charge cycles, that number would be entered here under the Condition of "Greater Than or Equal to a Threshold Value." Once that number is reached, data about that battery would begin at the frequency selected for that feature group.

The selected frequency for a single group applies to all metrics in the group. For example, if a 30-minute interval is selected for Smart Battery, data will be collected every 30 minutes for each enabled metric in the Smart Battery group, provided that metric has met its individual threshold (if any).
