Discrepancies in web analytics pages

Hi, I am wondering the difference between these two analytics dashboards:

https://dash.cloudflare.com/some-id/my-website-url/analytics/traffic

and

https://dash.cloudflare.com/some-id/web-analytics/overview?siteTag~in=some-idf&time-window=10080.

The first one shows 6k unique visitors in the last 7 days, the second one shows 3k unique visitors. Why this difference?

Web analytics uses JS code to the website that’s triggered by a visitor’s browser. If they block JavaScript, or if it’s a bot, Web Analytics aren’t going to count that.

Regular dashboard analytics measure proxied traffic, regardless of its source. That’s why it shows higher numbers.

I see. So safe to assume the 3k discrepancy is attributed to mainly bots then?
