  • Raw log files are files that contain information about website visitor activity. Log files are created by web servers automatically. Each time a visitor requests any file (page, image, etc.) from the site information on his request is appended to a current log file. Most log files have text format and each log entry (hit) is saved as a line of text.

    Here is a sample of log entry in Apache Combined format:

    213.135.131.79 - - [15/May/2002:19:21:49 -0400] "GET /features.htm HTTP/1.1" 200 9955 "http://www.weblogexpert.com/download.htm" "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; Q312461)"
