The CPU load depends on the time a server spends executing a script every time a visitor opens a page on a specific script-driven website. Static HTML Internet sites use hardly any CPU time, but it is not the situation with the much more complex and functional scripts, that use a database and display dynamic content. The more people open such a website, the more load shall be generated on the hosting server and if the database is big, the MySQL server will be loaded also. An illustration of what can cause high load is an online store with tens of thousands of products. If it's popular, many people shall be browsing it at the same time and if they search for items, the whole database containing all the products will also be frequently accessed by the script, which will result in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load stats can provide an idea of how the website is doing, if it has to be optimized or if you simply just need a more powerful web hosting solution - if the site is very popular and the existing setup cannot handle the load.
MySQL & Load Stats in Cloud Website Hosting
Our system keeps detailed info about the system resource usage of every single cloud website hosting account which is set up on our top-notch cloud platform, so if you choose to host your websites with us, you will have full access to this info through the Hepsia CP, which you shall get with the account. The CPU load statistics include the CPU time and the actual execution time of your scripts, and the amount of system memory they used. You may see what processes produced the load - PHP or Perl scripts, cron jobs, etcetera. The MySQL load statistics section will show you the number of queries to each particular database you have created in your shared hosting account, the total queries for the account as a whole and the standard hourly rate. Comparing these statistics to the visitor stats shall tell you if your Internet sites perform the way they have to or if they require some optimization, that'll improve their performance and the overall site visitor experience.
MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our system generates thorough stats about both kinds of load, so if you purchase a semi-dedicated server for your Internet sites, you can access the data with just a couple of mouse clicks within your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Each type of data is listed in its own section. The CPU Load section will show you exactly what processes produced the load and the time it took for the server to execute all of the requests. Although stats are generated every 6 hours, you can see day-to-day and per month stats as well. In the MySQL Load section you'll find a list of all the databases generated in your semi-dedicated account manually and automatically, how many queries were sent to each of them, the total daily queries for the account overall, along with the average hourly rate. This info will help you figure out how well your sites perform and if each of them requires optimization of some kind.
