> After some more discussion with :chutten and :mdroettboom on slack (#gv) it sounds like there's a bunch of work to be done before Fenix can submit gecko telemetry probes. Much of that work is at the geckoview layer involving adding a metrics.yaml file for glean and hooking it up (somehow) such that GV sends along the data to glean. I found bug 1497997 which seems kinda related but seems to be not specifically about Fenix but more generally about tracking GV performance. So I think there might not be a bug tracking this work as of yet. I'll ask around more and file something if there isn't.

For the medium to long term, that "GV Telemetry into Glean SDK" needs an integration story.

For the short-term, if there are priority metrics that you need to collect, you can:
- [Add a new Glean metric](https://github.com/mozilla-mobile/android-components/blob/master/components/service/glean/docs/metrics/adding-new-metrics.md) to the specific application code or to the android-components code.
- Collect the metric value from GeckoView (pull from app code or push from GV).
With that you can analyze the data just as other Glean metrics.

For the medium to long term, that "GV Telemetry into Glean SDK" needs an integration story and a scheduled project.

For the short-term, if there are priority metrics that you need to collect, you can:
