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