Tracking RSS Feed Statistics - OJS 3.1.2

Description of issue or problem I’m having:
Not necessarily an issue, just wondering if it’s possible to track RSS Feed Statistics in OJS 3.1.2.

Application Version - e.g., OJS 3.1.2:

Additional information, such as screenshots and error log messages if applicable:

Hi @alisdairmacrae,

OJS doesn’t track usage statistics on RSS feeds. I think analyzing the Apache log file and watching for the RSS URL, as you’re already considering, would be the best way to do this.
