An access log features a record of all files that have been requested by the visitors while exploring your site. The list is detailed, so in case you have a web page with two embedded images, for example, all of the three files shall be in the log, not just the page. An access log usually includes the date, the Operating System, the browser and the IP address for every single file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the most well liked files on your Internet site. The log, that's also commonly named "raw data", is an addition to the web stats that you normally get with a hosting account, not a substitute. An illustration why you may require this type of a log is if you intend to use some software on your computer to prepare a report about the website’s general performance, but you don't want to use the regular graphs and tables which come with the server-generated web stats.
