Whenever you make a request to a web server for a page, it records it in a file which is called logs.
The logs of a webserver are the gold mines for gaining insights in the user behaviour. Every data scientists usually look at the logs first to understand the behaviour of the users. But since the logs are humongous in size, it takes a distributed framework like Hadoop or Spark to process it.
