How can the number of pages visited go up 5 times, while the visitors dropped slightly?Er... because you had fewer individual human visitors, but they each stuck around longer? On most sites that would be considered a good thing.
What is AW?I was going to say: Oh, come on, you know awstats, they’re all over the place, and then I was going to fetch up the IP and UA. In so doing, I discovered that, (a) it isn’t a robot after all (I would have been prepared to bet money that there is a ubiquitous awstatsbot), and (b) the last request for /awstats/ on any of my sites was way back in 2013, and the overwhelming majority in 2011.
AWStats is commonly installed as part of ControlPanel on many hosts.Ah, that explains it. My host rolls their own control panel so presumably they've also coded their own stats. In fact, before posting above, I opened one site's stats--which I never, ever do, and had to hunt down my username and password!--just to verify that logs would not show /awstats/.*
