Firefox for Android Telemetry - next steps

Hi,

given the imminent shutdown of the FHR v2/v3 pipeline, Margaret and i got
together and discussed short-term options and future work for Android.

The first actions we need for Fennec 43+ are:

   -

   Disable FHR upload for 43+ - the safe approach is to just stop sending
   data to the soon unused pipeline
   -

   Adjust gives the mobile team some short-term data - this might be
   extended temporarily
   -

   We need to find out what to do with mobile about:healthreport for 43+ -
   turn it off, leave it, …

For future steps we are looking at:

   -

   removing FHR (bug 1183320
   <https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1183320>)
   -

   investigating how to get critical metrics for Fennec from Telemetry
   -

   investigating current Fennec Telemetry collection -
   times/frequency/contents
   -

   using an uploader service for Telemetry pings (bug 1220171
   <https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1220171>)


We were planning to have Fennec submit proper Unified Telemetry data anyway
(bug 1220177 <https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1220177>
tracks), this just potentially accelerates the schedule for that.

We will look into having Fennec sent proper Unified Telemetry pings, but
this will require some investigations and Android-specific design first.

Given that we are already designing a light-weight ping approach for mobile
Firefox (starting with iOS, a design doc for comment will come around
soon), we are considering implementing this for Android first before
investigating the full ping sending.

This could be a viable short-term option as this:

   -

   would send critical core metrics in a very light-weight package
   -

   could be implemented relatively quickly as a proof-of-concept


Moving forward we should:

   -

   have a proper kickoff for this
   -

   find out what the key product metrics are (and if they match the ones we
   use for the iOS design)
   - get some understanding of the timeframes

Georg
