Couple of things to check:

  • from central admin > application management > service application, make sure Usage and Health Data Collection Proxy is started.
  • Make sure “Microsoft SharePoint Foundation Usage Data Import” and “Microsoft SharePoint Foundation Usage Data Processing” jobs are running as per schedule.
  • Make sure Search service is running.
  • Make sure Usage Logs properly created.(typically found C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\15\LOGS\RequestUsage
  • You can also enable Verbose logging and see ifyou see further details in Logs, also check the event log.
