Measure the frequency of the Http Call out from a lightning component

Based on the awesome tutorial  here (https://sfdcmonkey.com/2017/01/02/http-callout-lightning-component/)
I created a lightning component to make a Http Callout  
Now I would  like to measure the  usage of this  Http Callout, similar to the 7 day API usage metrics report. However, i want to know which user clicked the button and how many times in a day/week. 

Can some please point me in the right direction or to a documentation/blog to be able to build a lightning component usage metrics.

As mentioned in my post, it is a lightning component.
