    I know awstats is looking at apache logs while overall bandwidth reporting comes from bandmin. And I know that awstats shows only one domain/subdomain at a time, and doesn't show email or FTP bandwidth.

    That said, I'm seeing extremely large disparities where there shouldn't be. One customer with only one domain, no FTP traffic, and minimal email traffic, is seeing 12GB reported by bandmin but only 5GB reported by awstats. Other users have similarly large variances (including my personal domains). I don't expect these stats to match, but in many cases, the differences seem too large to account for.

    What other factors contribute to the difference?

    Thanks,
    Scot

    Do you have webalizer setup and reporting? Awstats only reports bandwidth usage from actual visits and sometimes does not report acuratly. Also where are you pulling the email stats from?

    No, webalyzer is disabled, sorry. I'm not pulling email stats for this - I just know that the user has only one light-duty email account.

    I know awstats can be off sometimes, but is it often *that* far off?

    Thanks,
    Scot
