The Usage Stats plugin is deactivated by default due to causing performance issues on large installations. However, we can still activate the plugin for you if you submit a request through

Hi @Paula Silveira, do you have any stats on how large of a performance issue when enabled? If minimal, is the option to enable still available or are all users pointed to the below comment (Analytics for Confluence Cloud)?

Hi Thierry,

We've created an add-on that gives some great usage statistics in Confluence Cloud. It includes an overview of activity but also the details like who has viewed a particular page.

Is there a more coat effective solution?  We can't add the additional $7k to our budget at this time.

If you're familiar with Google Analytics, you could also consider using Google Analytics for Confluence Cloud, which sends activity in Confluence into Google Analytics. This app is currently free and is from another Top Vendor on the Atlassian Marketplace.

As mentioned by @Tim Clipsham, there are a few options outside of the Usage plugin which are provided by third-parties add-ons:
