An access log features a record of all the files which have been requested by the visitors while browsing your website. The list is comprehensive, so in case you have a web page with 2 embedded images, for instance, all of the three files will be in the log, not only the page. An access log normally includes the date, the OS, the Internet browser and the IP address for each and every file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the most well liked files on your site. The log, that's also frequently named "raw data", is an addition to the web stats you usually get with a hosting account, not a substitute. An example why you may require such a log is if you intend to use some software on your computer to prepare a report about the website’s general performance, but you do not want to use the regular graphs and tables that come with the server-generated site statistics.
