Application Metrics Collection

I have a requirement to collect application metrics (No of transactions done by a particular user/IP to a particular service/method) and store/transmit it either in CSV or XML. I have done this previously with the help of traffic logs and external tools like splunk. But in the current requirement I don't have any log management tool and the expectation is to do this as much internally in the gateway as possible since this data will be used to bill customers. Can we use the SSG database, some REST services and achieve this without the help of logs? If yes, please let me know some ways of going about and implementing the same. The Production gateway servers doesn't receive much of a traffic and the SSG database doesn't hold more than 10000 audit events per day and I guess this will not have much of a performance hit in the gateway. Thanks!
