    AW stats displays the hot linking of the website. AWStats analayzes the log files of your website and compiles some very nice charts, graphs, and statistics about your website. You can use the statistics it generates to see how much bandwidth is going. Another useful feature is the ability to see where traffic to your site is coming from which can be found in the ‘Connect to site from’ section.
