Does anyone recommend something like ____ or another DIY tool to test or track how well our Google Analytics is tracking our Chinese visitors?

I've run Google Analytics as a primary traffic analysis tool for quite a while. Way back when, I used Omniture or whatever out-of-the-box "stats" tools came with hosting. Everything has been OK as long as I've been working with websites that have a primarily US/English-based audience.

For the past couple of years, however, I've been working with a global firm's website that wants to make sure it's working in China properly. I hear often that China blocks Google, so I'm wondering if anyone has experience diving into this issue.

What I've heard, for example:
[statstory.com ]

Apart from hosting jquery and web fonts somewhere other than Google and thinking about different SEs, I'm wondering if I need to run an open source analytics tool to make sure we're not getting more traffic than we thought we were. Any thoughts on that?

Thank you
