An access log features a record of all files which have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your Internet site. The list is comprehensive, so when you have a webpage with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files shall be in the log, not only the page. An access log normally contains the date, the OS, the web browser and the IP address for each and every file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the most popular files on your website. The log, which is also typically referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web data that you commonly get with a hosting account, not an alternative. An illustration why you could need this type of a log is if you want 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 which come with the server-generated web statistics.
