Taking the IP accounting information from server log files is
inefficient and is impossible with a large amount of high traffic sites.
The size of logs generated is incredible and can take days to import.
Most large service providers take the IP accounting information from the
routers using Netflow accounting. The only way I know of matching
Netflow information to a site is by IP address.

If you currnetly use the web server's log files to account for
traffic (which I'm sure is the standard method of throughput
accounting for web-sites), you should easily be able to parse usage
based on named sites. It shouldn't be significantly more difficult
than parsing the logs for IP sites.
