An access log includes a record of all of the files that have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your website. The list is comprehensive, so when you have a page with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files shall be in the log, not just the page. An access log normally includes the date, the OS, the web browser and the IP address for each file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the most popular files on your website. The log, that is also typically named "raw data", is an addition to the web data that you usually get with a hosting account, not a substitute. One example why you may need this sort of a log is if you would like 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 which come with the server-generated web statistics.
