I wish to see who has accessed my server and what speed they have downloaded the website at. How can this be done?

'Who' can be seen in your access logs, the location of which is configurable but defaults (in debian) to /var/log/apache2/access.log

'What speed' can be garnered by using the Custom Log module and dividing %B (bytes sent) by %T (time to serve the request).

+1 on the speed calculation - I hadn't thought of that. –  EEAA Aug 23 '10 at 20:12

If by "who", you mean "what IP addresses", then yes, that information should be in your apache access_log. Also in that log, you'll find information as far as how much data was tranferred.
