View data collected by the insights-client uploader
Red Hat Insights collects specific system metadata for analysis. The
insights-client -- no-upload command enables users to view all of their collected metadata without uploading anything to Red Hat Insights servers.
insights-client --no-upload command performs a collection test run and saves the output to a local temporary directory,
/var/tmp/ in the example below.
