An access log features a record of all the files which have been requested by the visitors while browsing your Internet site. The list is thorough, so when you have a web page with two embedded images, for example, all of the three files will be in the log, not just the page. An access log normally includes the date, the OS, the browser and the IP address for every file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the most popular files on your site. The log, which is also commonly referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web data that you normally get with a hosting account, not an alternative. One example why you might need this kind of a log is if you intend to use some software on your computer to prepare a report about the website’s overall performance, but you don't want to use the standard graphs and tables which come with the server-generated website statistics.
