but on google analytics not more than 100 daily!!
 
Could you please tell me what is this, could be this spam attack by fake visits, if yes why it's not recorded by Analytics

I could not find any information on cloudflare metrics reporting capibilities but since it acts primarily as a reverse proxy server I suspect it analyzes metrics at the server level via log files, while GA captures and analyzes data at the page level. Much greater traffic comes into the server than is ever rendered in a browser so my guess would be that is the result of the huge differences, apples and oranges in the way they count.
