 *Note:* The server-side behaviour is documented in the `HTTP Edge Server specification <https://wiki.mozilla.org/CloudServices/DataPipeline/HTTPEdgeServerSpecification>`_.
 Pings are submitted via a common API on ``TelemetryController``.
 If a ping fails to successfully submit to the server immediately (e.g. because
 of missing internet connection), Telemetry will store it on disk and retry to
 send it until the maximum ping age is exceeded (14 days).

+  The :doc:`main pings <../data/main-ping>` are kept locally even after successful submission to enable the HealthReport and SelfSupport features. They will be deleted after their retention period of 180 days.
 Submission logic
 Sending of pending pings starts as soon as the delayed startup is finished. They are sent in batches, newest-first, with up
 to 10 persisted pings per batch plus all unpersisted pings.
 The send logic then waits for each batch to complete.
 If it succeeds we trigger the next send of a ping batch. This is delayed as needed to only trigger one batch send per minute.
 If ping sending encounters an error that means retrying later, a backoff timeout behavior is
 triggered, exponentially increasing the timeout for the next try from 1 minute up to a limit of 120 minutes.
 Any new ping submissions and "idle-daily" events reset this behavior as a safety mechanism and trigger immediate ping sending.
+Some pings (e.g. :doc:`crash pings <../data/crash-ping>` and :doc:`main pings <../data/main-ping>` with reason `shutdown`) are submitted using the :doc:`../internals/pingsender`.
+The pingsender tries to send each ping once and, if it fails, no additional attempt is performed: ``TelemetrySend`` will take care of retrying using the previously described submission logic.
 Status codes
 The telemetry server team is working towards `the common services status codes <https://wiki.mozilla.org/CloudServices/DataPipeline/HTTPEdgeServerSpecification#Server_Responses>`_, but for now the following logic is sufficient for Telemetry:
 * `2XX` - success, don't resubmit
 * `4XX` - there was some problem with the request - the client should not try to resubmit as it would just receive the same response
 * `5XX` - there was a server-side error, the client should try to resubmit later

 This is the "main" Telemetry ping type, whose payload contains most of the measurements that are used to track the performance and health of Firefox in the wild.
 It includes the histograms and other performance and diagnostic data.
 This ping is triggered by different scenarios, which is documented by the ``reason`` field:
 * ``aborted-session`` - this ping is regularly saved to disk (every 5 minutes), overwriting itself, and deleted at shutdown. If a previous aborted session ping is found at startup, it gets sent to the server. The first aborted-session ping is generated as soon as Telemetry starts
 * ``environment-change`` - the :doc:`environment` changed, so the session measurements got reset and a new subsession starts
-* ``shutdown`` - triggered when the browser session ends
+* ``shutdown`` - triggered when the browser session ends. For the first browsing session, this ping is saved to disk and sent on the next browser restart. From the second browsing session on, this ping is sent immediately on shutdown using the :doc:`../internals/pingsender`
 * ``daily`` - a session split triggered in 24h hour intervals at local midnight. If an ``environment-change`` ping is generated by the time it should be sent, the daily ping is rescheduled for the next midnight
 * ``saved-session`` - the *"classic"* Telemetry payload with measurements covering the whole browser session (only submitted for a transition period)
 Most reasons lead to a session split, initiating a new *subsession*. We reset important measurements for those subsessions.
 After a new subsession split, the ``internal-telemetry-after-subsession-split`` topic is notified to all the observers. *This is an internal topic and is only meant for internal Telemetry usage.*
-*Note:* ``saved-session`` is sent with a different ping type (``saved-session``, not ``main``), but otherwise has the same format as discussed here.
