The Confluence Usage Stats plugin provides basic page view tracking in Confluence in the Space Activity tab. We know that usage tracking is important to you, however, the current implementation is disabled by default as it can have a noticeable impact on your site's performance.
We plan to remove this feature in Confluence 8.0. Significant work is required to make this feature compatible with Confluence 8.0, and the functionality is largely superseded by Analytics, which was added in Confluence Data Center 7.11.
Analytics provides a significantly better analytics experience and will continue to be available for Data Center customers in Confluence 8.0.
