In my experience, I have found that Twiki has very good built in
statistics that will probably give all of what you need. You can also
get good statistics from any wiki installation that is running behind a
web server (I have used Confluence/Apache/AWStats with success).
I have a few contacts in Australia who have used Twiki and Confluence
for software design and they might be able to give you some statistics.
If we are not too far away for your studies, please contact me directly
