Hello,
What is the difference between the bandwidth usage that appears in the cPanel Statistics and the bandwidth in Awstats?
cPanel bandwidth: 3.4 TB
Awstats bandwidth: 14.8 TB

Check the attached screenshots.

Awstats only has web server traffic. The cPanel number will also include FTP, POP/IMAP/SMTP. So the cPanel number is a more accurate representation of the actual bandwidth used.

Ok, then the cPanel number should be greater, correct?

Now, my usage is
cPanel bandwidth: 3.4 TB
Awstats bandwidth: 14.8 TB

cPanel number "should" be higher, but we don't rely on either. We have access to the switch ports, and that's the best place to measure.
