Object usage hit count and when?

Is anyone aware of a way to output object usage details in R80.10?

We do of course have hit counts enabled in our policies and so can see when a rule was last hit there by hovering over it.

However, in order to try and keep our rulebases trim and secure its would be amazing to see if an object within a rule or within a group was last hit and how many times.

Currently we use 3rd Party Firemon to do this, in fact that is the only reason we use the software. It seems like a rather expensive way to achieve this goal. I did see it mentioned that object hit counts were on the roadmap for future but there must be a way to do this with all the new amazing API's? I'm struggling to get to grips with them myself still Smiley Sad

We like to run a policy of if something hasn't been used for 100 days then it can be removed cautiously.  Smiley Happy

Any ideas gratefully received?

That is much too general for me - some things only return once a year and we will not want to delete them

indeed but in the last 2 years we've only been caught out once so it seems to be working for us so far. Smiley Happy
