Configuring BloxConnect

Infoblox BloxConnect is the ability of the Infoblox DDI platform to send snapshots of encrypted and automated system data and utilization information to the Infoblox business operations center. Infoblox uses this data to improve product functionality and provide better customer service. The BloxConnect feature collects and sends encrypted data during the following instances:

  • On the first setup of the system
  • Daily, following an up time of 24 hours
  • When a system reboots following a system failure

The Data Collection and Opt-Out Notice, which explains the BloxConnect feature, appears only when you log in to Grid Manager from the NIOS UI for the first time. By default, data collection is enabled. If you want to disable it, select To opt-out of BloxConnect, please click here, and then click OK. Snapshots include information about basic configuration, features, and protocols collected from your physical and virtual systems. Additionally, snapshots provide health, diagnostic, and utilization information related to CPU, disk, leases per second (LPS) , queries per second (QPS), IPAM, and memory usage. The data does not include customer-sensitive or personal information.

Only administrators with superuser privileges can configure BloxConnect for a Grid Master or an independent appliance. To configure BloxConnect, complete the following steps:

  1. Log in to Grid Manager as a superuser.
  2. Grid: On the Grid tab, select Grid Manager tab -> Members tab. Expand the Toolbar, and click Grid Properties -> Edit.
    Standalone system: On the System tab, select System Manager tab -> Node tab. Expand the Toolbar and then click System Properties -> Edit.
  3. In the editor, click Toggle Advanced Mode to switch to the advanced mode.
    Note that if the editor is already in the advanced mode, then you will see the Toggle Basic Mode button.

    • To opt in for data collection, select the BloxConnect Data Collection and Opt-Out Notice check box checkbox.
    • To opt out of data collection, clear the BloxConnect Data Collection and Opt-Out Notice check boxcheckbox.
      Infoblox recommends that you enable BloxConnect as Infoblox uses the data collected to improve its technical support services.
