Scylla Housekeeping and how to disable it

It is recommended to always run the latest and greatest version of Scylla open source or Scylla Enterprise. When you install Scylla, it installs by default two services: scylla-housekeeping-restart and scylla-housekeeping-daily. These services check for the latest Scylla version and prompt the user if they are using a version that is older than what is publicly available. Information about your Scylla deployment, including the Scylla version currently used, as well as unique user and server identifiers, are collected by a centralized service.

To disable these service, update file /etc/scylla.d/housekeeping.cfg as follow: check-version: False
