An access log contains a record of all the files that have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your website. The list is comprehensive, so if 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 contains the date, the Operating System, the browser and the IP address for each and every file in human-readable form, so you can get an idea about the hottest files on your Internet site. The log, that's also commonly referred to as "raw data", is an addition to the web statistics which you usually get with a hosting account, not an alternative. An illustration why you may need this sort of a log is if you intend to use some software on your personal computer to prepare a report about the website’s performance, but you don't want to use the typical graphs and tables that come with the server-generated site stats.
