In case of fallbacks you have to check properly through querying a
custom XSL, JSON or the admin backend.

If you need IPs and UA strings then that's the only option. Plain
numbers you can get easier.
Note:
- as you noticed listclients instead of listclients.xsl gives you raw XML
- you can get mount specific information using the mount specific
credentials, you don't have to use admin credentials.

see docs link above.
