An access log features a record of all the files which have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your Internet site. The list is thorough, so in case you have a page with 2 embedded images, for example, all of the three files shall be in the log, not just the page. An access log normally includes the date, the Operating System, the Internet browser and the IP address for each file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the hottest files on your site. The log, that is also typically named "raw data", is an addition to the web data that you normally get with a hosting account, not an alternative. An example why you may need this type of a log is if you intend to use some software on your computer to prepare a report about the website’s efficiency, but you do not want to use the conventional graphs and tables that come with the server-generated site stats.
