I want to know if  there is a way in CI to trace all the functions called by the user after getting connected.
With this information, I would know which features are popular are which features aren’t being used, and I could then try to find out if they’re not being used because they’re not useful, their implementation is poor or people just don’t know about it. Thank
The best (and quickest) way to do that would be to incorporate google analytics into your site.

How looks your page structure?

My blog tracking table
blog_track (id, blog_category_id, blog_entry_id, date, useragent, ip, user_id)

You can use Piwik. It is similar to google analytics.

It is possible but there are a lot of services out there that do it much better than you can ever do (unless you have a team of 30-40 developers ONLY working on this), also let's not forget the burden it puts on your database server.


Finally the graphs and analytics it provides are also to be considered.

I would recommend you take a look at this: https://mixpanel.com/
