We were using the Usage stats plugin to monitor the usage of our wiki up to version 5.4 of Confluence.
Now we have upgraded to 5.6.6 and the plugin was automatically disabled.
Enabling shows that the plugin is incompatible and marketplace shows the least update is compatible up to 5.5.7.
This does not look very user friendly to me.
Is this plugin already out of maintenance? Then why is it still delivered?
Will there be a version that is compatible does not impact the performance in short time?
Is there an alternative to monitor the traffic in Confluence (besides adding google analytics everywhere?)
I believe a productive system should have this capability out of the box!
You could indeed add Google Analytics. AppFusions' Google Analytics for Atlassian Confluence add-on recently had it's version 4.0 release. It works nicely with the latest version of Confluence and has been featured on the Atlassian website here and here.
You can for example see space specific stats in space admin:

Or see who viewed a page:
Another option for user engagement statistics is this product that has been shipping and continually supported for for 3 yrs now. https://www.appfusions.com/display/CONFENGAGE/Home Its a little different spin than the Google Analytics plugin. BTW: the Google Analytics plugin was just recently majorly updated to be compatible with Google's latest APIs. Google has made numerous updates to their APIs over the last year, especially taking effect in April 2015. As such, many Google integrations have been broken, if not updated with these new APIs. So check this out in any solution you use - the new API usage is not optional (to the end user or vendor - mandatory).
Harald, Given you feel that way, I hope you check out the feature request page mentioned in my answer, and perhaps add your comment to that page. Your comment is viable and the best place to make it is on that feature request page so Atlassian Product Management and developers see it Also, please consider upvoting my answer below and/or accepting David's or mine.
