Ceph has done something like this with good results - https://docs.ceph.com/docs/master/mgr/telemetry/ <https://docs.ceph.com/docs/master/mgr/telemetry/>

I think the things that have helped this to be successful are

- easy way to see what you would send
- option (not the default) to provide more details such as company and contact

I think many OpenStack projects could benefit from this sort of approach for

- capacity growth
- rate of upgrade
- support some of the user survey activities by automatically collecting data rather than asking for responses in a manual survey

Would it be possible to consider an Oslo module so the infrastructure could be common and then we make it anonymous opt-in ?
