What is Server Log?
A server log is an automatically created log file that lists all the activities performed on a server. For instance, a web server maintains the complete log files of all the requests made by users to the server. Log files help webmasters to evaluate the performance by enabling them to know from where the major visitor traffic has landed on their website, the visitors bounce rate, client IP address, HTTP code, and how they navigate through a website.
These log files are either combined into an individual file or segregated into multiple logs. Usually, server logs do not gather user-specific details.
