What is Phonehome

Phonehome will periodically have the Delphix Engine send supportability information to the Delphix Support site over HTTPS.  This feature requires a connection to the internet and will use the Web Proxy Server configuration if specified. Phonehome is not required by Delphix but does provide us with some basic information such as number of objects on your engine, storage savings, type of database source, number of processors etc. Delphix uses this data for information gathering purposes only.
