I am doing some research into some machine learning algorithms that can be used to analyze website logs.

A friend gave me access to his Google Analytics, but all I see are reports and I am not able to see the actual logs. If I am not mistaken, google has put a high price on access to these logs (over 100K per year).

I am looking for open logs which record website events: UserId, TimeStamp, BrowserDetails, LocationDetails etc. Very close to Apache access logs, but with richer instrumentation to say more about each event.

Are there any website logs that are open and freely downloadable for research purposes.

thank you.

I don't think you can get the raw logs, but you can certainly access the data via an API, outside of your web browser.


  • You mean per logged line (event) I can get the data? I am not looking for reports (aggregated over a day or a week etc), but the actual data points per logged event. Are you saying this is possible? (The link is broken btw) – jason Jul 19 '18 at 15:29
