I'm trying to configure AWStats so that it ignores my benchmarks, which I usually run with ab (Apache Benchmark).

The following entry did not change anything, the entries are still considered:

SkipUserAgents="REGEX[ApacheBench.*] ApacheBench/2.3"

And yes, I deleted the old AWStats result (to force re-creation). How do I solve this?

I solved this. In the end, the SkipUserAgents entry is correctly processed, but I had set LogFormat=4 because it said Apache there. But LogFormat=1 is the correct format in my case - this also solves user agent parsing and thus the problem.
