I see two ways to do this:

1) You *can* use GA and some Javascript embedded in your III pages to log "events" (as they´re called in GA lingo). The javascript (depending on your coding wizardry level) could track anything from hovers over elements, form submission, "next page" events, etc.

2) Move all or part of your catalog traffic thru a reverse proxy which does the actual tracking. Of course, finding the proxy software is one thing, finding one that analyzes the specific requests or patterns is another =) More likely you would have to find an OSS proxy then modify it to do what you want =)

I'd go with GA first =) By the way, I've done a bit of snooping around this area, you can email me if you need help =)

Hello coders,

I'm looking at tracking our III OPAC usage via a Google Analytics-like tool. As far as I can tell, GA itself doesn't track POST data for privacy reasons. Anyone here know of something for this? I found an open-source GA-like, on-your-own-server PHP project called Piwik [http://piwik.org] which I imagine does this, or could be modified easily enough.
