dunno without looking at your logs and running your traffic thru an IDS/IPS...
they could be, but also may not be... this statement does not mean that i'm
willing to analyze your logs of traffic, though... that comes at a price ;)
> The Webalzer visitor number is over 3x that of GA
see my previous where i stated that many folk specifically block GA and so do
not get counted...
FWIW: i use awstats and webalizer and both are slightly different with their
numbers... it all depends on what you want counted and what you term as a
"visit"... remember, someone can come by now and then 10 minutes later come by
again... depending on your timeout setting in webalizer, this might be counted
as two visits or could be counted as one if their return was within the set
webalizer timeout period (timeout is not what it is called, though)...
