The CPU load is dependent upon the amount of time a web server spends executing a script whenever a visitor opens a page on a given script-driven site. Static HTML websites use hardly any CPU time, but it's not so with the far more sophisticated and functional scripts, that use a database and display dynamic content. The more people open such a site, the more load shall be generated on the hosting server and if the database is big, the MySQL server will be loaded also. A good example of what can cause high load is an online store with a large number of products. If it's popular, many people will be browsing it simultaneously and if they seek out items, the entire database that contains all of the products shall also be constantly accessed by the script, which will result in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load data will provide you with an idea of how the site is doing, if it has to be optimized or if you simply need a more potent hosting solution - if the Internet site is extremely popular and the current setup can't cope with the load.
MySQL & Load Stats in Shared Website Hosting
Our system keeps detailed info about the system resource usage of each shared website hosting account that's created on our top-notch cloud platform, so if you choose to host your sites with us, you shall have full access to this data via the Hepsia Control Panel, which you'll get with the account. The CPU load stats include the CPU time and the actual execution time of your scripts, and the amount of system memory they used. You can also see what processes produced the load - PHP or Perl scripts, cron jobs, etc. The MySQL load data section will show you the total amount queries to each particular database that you have created in your shared hosting account, the total queries for the account as a whole and the normal hourly rate. Comparing these figures to the visitor data will tell you if your Internet sites perform the way they have to or if they require some optimization, that'll improve their functionality and the overall site visitor experience.
MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you need to see in depth statistics about the load generated by your sites, it won't take more than a few mouse clicks to do that. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all semi-dedicated servers that we offer, has a section committed to the system resource usage and the info there shall tell you if your Internet sites operate properly and if the load they create corresponds to the amount of received site visitors. The CPU load data include the script execution time and the span of time it took for the server to process the requests, as well as what kinds of processes generated the load. The MySQL stats will show you how frequently each database was accessed, and also daily and hourly statistics for the entire account. With both kinds of stats, you'll be able to check the numbers for any of the past days and months, so you can see how sites perform as the traffic to them increases or once you've applied some update.
