An access log features a record of all of the files which have been requested by the visitors while browsing your website. The list is detailed, so in case you have a webpage with two embedded images, for example, all of the three files will be in the log, not only the page. An access log typically contains 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 Internet site. The log, that's also typically called "raw data", is an addition to the web data you usually get with a hosting account, not a replacement. A good example why you may require this type of a log is if you would like to use some software on your computer to prepare a report about the website’s efficiency, but you don't want to use the typical graphs and tables that come with the server-generated site statistics.
