Awstats shows hosts not in raw access logs

In the past 3 months, I had a bandwidth usage increase, so I checked the list of hosts in Awstats and it showed the following at the top: broadband.actcorp.in (resolves to 208.91.197.205), sjn.httpint.globe.com.ph and tlc.httpint.globe.com.ph (cannot be resolved!).

My hosting support and I suspect image hotlinking, so these hosts could appear either in the IP field or the referrer field of the respective access log, but I cannot find them by IP or name.

How is it possible for Awstats to record many visits from a host and hundreds of megabytes of bandwidth without a match in the access log?

Also, cPanel documentation claims that the cPanel/WHM bandwidth count is more accurate, and lower, than that reported by "log processing" programs, like Awstats, but I see the opposite, with the bandwidth count at 87GB (HTTP only) and Awstats only showing 82GB.

Hello,

Could you verify which specific access log you are checking, and confirm the access logs include data for the time period utilized by Awstats in that bandwidth output?

Thank you.
