An access log features a record of all files which have been requested by the visitors while exploring your Internet site. The list is thorough, so in case you have a web page with 2 embedded images, for instance, all of the three files shall be in the log, not just the page. An access log normally contains the date, the OS, the web browser and the IP address for every file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the most well liked files on your Internet site. The log, that is also frequently called "raw data", is an addition to the web stats you usually get with a hosting account, not an alternative. A good example why you might need this sort of a log is if you intend to use some software on your PC to prepare a report about the website’s overall performance, but you do not want to use the regular graphs and tables that come with the server-generated site statistics.
