Have no usage stats, have checked permissions, timer jobs and receivers. Usage file being created and consumed but it doesn't appear to be updating the database and there are a few days worth of folders in the events store.

    Please check as following to narrow down this issue:

    1. Check if the search service application is in good status. Make sure you have all the default timer jobs referring to this post: Missing default timer jobs - Can we get them back?
    2. Navigate to Central Administration > Manage service applications > Usage and Health Data Collection Service Application and check if the service application is up and running. Make sure you have the events checked under Event Selection.
    3. Delete and then rebuild the mentioned service applications if necessary. Usage and Health Data Collection Service Application is enabled via Monitoring > Configure usage and health data collection > check “Enable usage data collection”.
      Reference: Configure usage and health data collection in SharePoint Server.
    4. Execute the following commands on SharePoint Server as Administrator:
      $aud = Get-SPUsageDefinition | where {$_.Name -like "Analytics*"}
      $aud | fl
      Check if the service is online and if other components are configured properly.
      This is the output from my test environment:
