An access log contains a record of all files which have been requested by the visitors while surfing around your site. The list is thorough, so when 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 normally includes the date, the OS, the web 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 typically called "raw data", is an addition to the web data you usually get with a hosting account, not an alternative. An example why you might need this kind of a log is if you want to use some software on your computer to prepare a report about the website’s efficiency, but you do not want to use the conventional graphs and tables that come with the server-generated site statistics.
