exclude log files from reports

Perhaps this is somewhere in the 342 pages of forum entries, but they're not easily searched.

Is there a way to exclude the log and stats directories from the reports? There's more "noise" from those entities than from the files in my S3 bucket. I would really appreciate reporting on my bucket content and not on the reporting activity.

Looks like this is a popular feature, as yours is the second request for it today. Copy/pasted from the other thread:

You're right that we report on all traffic to your bucket, even the requests to access your logfiles for reporting. We do this because it is in fact real traffic that you're receiving (and being charged for).

The quickest way to remove that traffic from your reports would be to create a new bucket specifically to receive your logfiles and to reconfigure your S3stat settings to deliver logs there. That would leave your main bucket receiving only user traffic, thus attaining the result you were looking for.
