If you have an HTML website, in all probability it uses a really small amount of system resources due to the fact that it's static, but this is not the case with dynamic database-driven Internet sites that use PHP scripts and offer much more capabilities. Such sites create load on the hosting server anytime anyone browses them, as the web server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to supply the information requested by the visitor's browser. A well-known discussion board, for example, stores all usernames and posts in a database, so some load is created every time a thread is opened or an end user searches for a particular word. If lots of people connect to the forum at the same time, or if every single search involves checking thousands of database entries, this could produce high load and affect the overall performance of the Internet site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load data can give you information about the site’s performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic stats to make a decision if the site needs to be optimized or moved to another kind of website hosting platform which will be able to bear the high system load in the event that the Internet site is popular.

MySQL & Load Stats in Cloud Hosting

Using the Hepsia Control Panel, included with all of our cloud hosting offers, you'll be able to see rather comprehensive stats concerning the system resources that your sites use. One of the sections shall give you information regarding the CPU load, like how much processing time the hosting server spent, how much time it took for your scripts to be executed and how much memory they used. Statistics are routinely created every 6 hours and you may also see the types of processes that generated the most load - PHP, Perl, and so forth. MySQL load stats are listed within a different section in which you are able to see all the queries on a per hour, daily, etc. basis. You could go back and compare data from various months to find out if some update has transformed the resource usage if the amount of website visitors hasn't changed much. Thus, you will see if your site needs to be optimized, which will give you a better performance and an improved user experience.

MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you want to see detailed statistics regarding the load created by your Internet sites, it won't take more than a couple of clicks to do this. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided with all semi-dedicated servers which we offer, has a section committed to the system resource usage and the information there can tell you if your Internet sites operate properly and if the load they produce corresponds to the total amount of received site visitors. The CPU load stats include the script execution time and the span of time it took for the hosting server to process the requests, and what kinds of processes produced the load. The MySQL data will show you how many times every single database was accessed, as well as daily and by the hour data for the whole account. With both sorts of stats, you are able to check the numbers for every one of the past days and months, so you can easily see how sites perform as the traffic to them grows or after you have applied some update.
