What is the best way of extracting data from confluence?

We use Confluence as a knowledge management application as it grows in size the content is becoming harder to manage. What is the best way to extract data such as:

Broken links

Pages with no incomming links

Pages containing links to external sites

What pages contain a link to a certain attachment/image

Map of a module or space (similar to BPMN)

User (what they clicked on within a time span)

Top page hits

Attachments (were is linked to, where is it displayed)

Any halp on this would be appreciated.

Thank you

Some info, such as the attachment info can be had by writing a user macro.
