An access log includes a record of all of the files that have been requested by the visitors while exploring your Internet site. The list is thorough, so when you have a page with 2 embedded images, for example, all of the three files will be in the log, not only the page. An access log typically includes the date, the OS, the browser and the IP address for every single file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the most popular files on your Internet site. The log, which is also typically named "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics which you usually get with a hosting account, not a substitute. A good example why you might need such a log is if you would like to use some software on your PC to prepare a report about the website’s overall performance, but you don't want to use the conventional graphs and tables which come with the server-generated web statistics.
