Log Files

Log files are records of which user agent accessed a website like what content, how many time it accessed. They contain information on who has made the request to access the website (also known as ‘The Client’).

There are some popular search engine bot, such as Googlebot, Bingbot, ChatGPT bot or a person viewing the site. Log file records are collected and kept by the web server of the site for a certain period of time.

  • The client IP.
  • A timestamp with the date and time of the request.
  • The method of accessing the site, which could be either GET or POST.
  • The URL that is requested, which contains the page accessed.
  • The Status Code of the page requested, which displays the success or failure of the request.
