This isn't for performance statistics for the developer but rather to
monitor that the commits are happening. We are continually faced with
developers not checking in for days or weeks at a time and that is not
our business model.

We have commit hooks we can modify if needed and log the commits to a
database and report off of that daily but I was looking to see what
others have already done.

Again, I was looking to get a general feel for what tools/reports were
available. Sometimes you don't know what is useful until you see what
others have used / needed.

I guess Server Statistics is a bad term. How about Repo Statistics? Disk
usage, free space etc....
