Can we get the top contributors of a particular Site Collection or a Web application by any means like OOTB or c# maybe.

I looked at many blogs but did not find any substantial answers.

Any help would be highly appreciated.

If you are looking at contributors to a document library (pages also) these examples of querying the SharePoint usage database will be helpful:


You can also view the usage logs using Log Parser to see which users are using the site the most. This is easier to work with in SQL.

  • Thanks for your reply Ryan but my concern is i would not have access to the SQL Server.How about using the Change Log?
