I was wondering if anyone has any good suggestions on pulling usage stat's from confluence. Page views per min type stuff. Has to be an internal solution, using Google Analytics is not an option due to security concerns.

There is the Usage Tracking Plugin, but it can cause some performance problems on large instances and can quickly blow out the size of the lucene index, so I'd recommend trialling it before going the whole hog with it.

What about using the Webtrends Analytics Connector?


The How Do I Get More Statistics from Confluence article has some good suggestions. In our case, i just run a set of SQL queries once a month that give me stats for the previous month, such as # of spaces, attachments, users, count by contenttype, top 10 largest spaces based on content, etc. I've found that some of the metrics-oriented plugins are very performance-intensive.

As we're in the process of adding Webtrends analytics to our Confluence installation, the statistics gathered there may suffice going forward.


Love to hear how your webtrends test works out.

Hi Betsy

Is it possible to share your sql queries.
