An access log includes a record of all of the files which have been requested by the visitors while exploring your Internet site. The list is detailed, so when you have a webpage with 2 embedded images, for instance, all of the three files will be in the log, not only the page. An access log typically includes the date, the Operating System, the Internet browser and the IP address for every file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the hottest files on your website. The log, that is also frequently referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web stats which you normally get with a hosting account, not a substitute. One example why you might need this type of a log is if you wish to use some software on your computer system to prepare a report about the website’s general performance, but you don't want to use the typical graphs and tables which come with the server-generated website statistics.
