An access log features a record of all files which have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your website. The list is comprehensive, so when you have a page with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files shall be in the log, not only the page. An access log typically contains the date, the Operating System, the Internet browser and the IP address for every file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the hottest files on your site. The log, which is also frequently called "raw data", is an addition to the web data that you usually get with a hosting account, not a replacement. An illustration why you may need such a log is if you want to use some software on your computer system to prepare a report about the website’s overall performance, but you don't want to use the standard graphs and tables that come with the server-generated web stats.
