If you would like to monitor the incoming traffic through IP address, this can be done through cPanel control panel. cPanel enables you to view the traffic coming from countries, specific keywords, IP's, operating systems and browsers.
I agree. Google Analytics provides with complete information related to website traffic. It also displays the sources through which the traffic is coming. Through Google Analytics, you can also track the user behavior for your website. This is the best traffic monitoring tool that I have ever used.
The AWStats provided with cPanel is also an efficient platform for monitoring the incoming traffic to the website. It shows the traffic sources and also the keywords used for searching your website. You can get complete information about the incoming traffic to your website through the AWStats.
One of the main concerns with using AWstats is that since it's installed over the server, it registers every request over a server level, which also includes the IPs. Therefore, the hits that you see in there need not be the organic traffic, it also includes the hits caused by different bots as well.
So, I prefer using 2-3 different analytic tools to get a better understanding of things.
