Phoning home, in computing, refers to an act of client to server communication where a client device or client application software reports its location on a network, the currently logged on user, or any other information to a server computer.

Phoning home may be useful in tracking a missing or stolen computer. This type of phoning home is frequently used on mobile computers at corporations. It typically involves a software agent which is difficult to detect or remove. However, there are malicious types of phoning home such as surreptitious communication between applications or hardware installed at end-user sites and their manufacturers or developers. The traffic may be encrypted to make it difficult or impractical for the end-user to ascertain what data is being transmitted.

Non-illegal phoning homeThere are some uses for the phoning home practice that are legal in some countries, for example:

Phoning home could be for purposes of access control, such as transmitting an authorization key. This is done with the Adobe Creative Suite. Each time one of the programs is opened, it phones home with the serial number. If the serial number is listed as being already in use, or a fake, then the program will present the user with the option of inputting the correct serial number. If the user refuses, the next time the program loads, it will operate in trial mode until a valid serial number has been input. However, the method can be thwarted by either disabling the internet connection when starting the program or adding a firewall or Hosts file rule to prevent the program from communicating with the verification server.

Phoning home could also be for marketing purposes, such as the "Sony BMG Rootkit", which transmits a hash of the currently playing CD back to Sony, or a digital video recorder (DVR) reporting on viewing habits. High-end computing systems such as mainframes have had 'phone home' capabilities for many years, to alert the manufacturer of hardware problems with the mainframes or disk storage subsystems (this enables repair or maintenance to be performed quickly and even proactively under the maintenance contract).

Η δική μου πρόταση προς μετάφραση:

The SAN Health Check will include gathering of information about the SAN from Phone Home logs, Enterprise Manager data when available and customer questionaires.

Αυτό ακριβώς έγραψα προσωρινά στη μετάφρασή μου, Σπύρο, αλλά δεν ξέρω αν υπάρχει κάποια άλλη απόδοση.

Δες και την άλλη ερώτηση για το health check.
