Collecting Metrics from tools


Hello there,

I’m wondering what do people here use to collect metrics from tools, to analyze a pipeline?

I’ve looked into Google Analytics, seems usable and free, but somewhat limited, now wondering about Tableau, but don’t know if you can use Tableau to collect data as well. They seem to have a HTTP REST API, which i would think might facilitate data collection, since I’d e looking for something that can just throw a ‘tool opened’ or ‘button clicked’ HTTP POST requests, but its hard to find some information on if Tableau can do this or not.

Any advice as to what to use/avoid?
