[Eril-l] Database usage metrics

I would like to know what metrics other libraries are using to report
database usage, especially those using a discovery service. Has your
library moved away from propriety reports and moved to Counter 4 or using a
mixture of both for any given vendor?

Traditionally we have recorded sessions and searches but are over inflated
with implementation of discovery product and no longer helpful. As a
result, looking to adopt full-text and abstract views and possibly some
Counter4 metrics.

Realize this is not a new problem and your situation and metrics provided
and used can vary based on database vendor and discovery product.
