An access log includes a record of all the files which have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your site. The list is detailed, so if you have a webpage with 2 embedded images, for example, all of the three files shall be in the log, not just the page. An access log normally contains the date, the OS, the web 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 is also often called "raw data", is an addition to the web stats you normally get with a hosting account, not an alternative. A good example why you may require this type of a log is if you intend to use some software on your PC to prepare a report about the website’s overall performance, but you do not want to use the standard graphs and tables which come with the server-generated site statistics.
