Which statictics site do you use?

Or script for that matter?
I am trying to figure out as accurate way as possible to see who, where and from where visitors come to my site. Google analytics, Alexa aren't accurate at all. I am using the phptrafficA script as well. This one is fairly more accurate than Google and Alexa, but it's hard to see the stats per refer unless I am willing to spend hours sorting through the pages of statistics. Awstats seems to be good with the details and more accurate than all of the above. So I am using that for now.
What do You use?

Awstats pulls directly from the webserver's logs so that's going to be the most accurate. The others use javascripts which may be blocked by the visitor or not run if it times out.

For numbers and whatnot, I'd go with Awstats. If you need to run analysis, you may want to host a local copy of Urchin which is what Google's Analytics is based on.

Check with your host/datacenter as they may resell it. For example, theplanet does. (Only place I can find mention of it without going into a sales page.)

Licensing info: https://secure.urchin.com/helpwiki/en/Licensing_Urchin

Resellers: http://www.google.com/urchin/usac.html

Hope this helps,

Check with your host/datacenter. When ev1 was still around, they sold it for a buck per server.

I use Google Analytics. Although I have used Awstats as well, as it comes free with my hosting package on some of my hosting accounts.
