An access log includes a record of all files that have been requested by the visitors while exploring your Internet site. The list is thorough, so if you have a page with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files will be in the log, not just the page. An access log usually contains the date, the OS, the Internet browser and the IP address for each and every file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the most popular files on your website. The log, that's also typically named "raw data", is an addition to the web stats you normally get with a hosting account, not a substitute. An example why you may need this type of a log is if you want to use some software on your PC to prepare a report about the website’s efficiency, but you don't want to use the conventional graphs and tables which come with the server-generated site stats.
