The reason they were seeing two different Audit Logs is that they were accessing two different, Load-Balanced Web Viewer Servers. There is only one Audit Log per Web Viewer server.
Determined that the Production Web Viewer was actually two separate Web Viewers, running out of different LPARS/on different systems. That explained why different Administrators were seeing many of the same statistics, but Different OMWBV start times and number of active users - two different Web Viewers logging data in two different folders, and writing to two, different Audit Log files.
