If you have an HTML Internet site, it probably uses a really small amount of system resources due to the fact that it's static, but this isn't so with dynamic database-driven sites that use PHP scripts and offer considerably more capabilities. This sort of Internet sites create load on the website hosting server when someone browses them, since the hosting server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to supply the information requested by the visitor's browser. A popular discussion board, for instance, stores all usernames and posts inside a database, so some load is produced each time a thread is opened or a user searches for a particular word. If a lot of people access the forum simultaneously, or if every search involves checking tens of thousands of database entries, this may create high load and affect the functionality of the website. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load data can give you info about the site’s overall performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic data to decide if the website must be optimized or transferred to a different sort of web hosting platform that will be able to bear the high system load in the event that the Internet site is popular.

MySQL & Load Stats in Cloud Website Hosting

Our system keeps comprehensive information about the system resource usage of each cloud website hosting account that's set up on our top-notch cloud platform, so if you opt to host your sites with our company, you'll have full access to this information from the Hepsia CP, which you'll get with the account. The CPU load statistics include the CPU time and the actual execution time of your scripts, and what amount of system memory they used. You may also see what processes created the load - PHP or Perl scripts, cron jobs, etc. The MySQL load data section will show you the number of queries to each particular database that you have created inside your shared hosting account, the total queries for the account in general and the normal hourly rate. Comparing these statistics to the site visitor stats will tell you if your sites perform the way they need to or if they need some optimization, which will improve their overall performance and the overall visitor experience.

MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you would like to see detailed stats regarding the load generated by your Internet sites, it will not take more than just a few clicks to do that. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided with all semi-dedicated servers which we offer, features a section focused on the system resource usage and the data there can tell you if your sites function properly and if the load they create corresponds to the number of received visitors. The CPU load statistics include the script execution time and the amount of time it took for the machine to process the requests, and also what types of processes created the load. The MySQL stats will show you the number of times each individual database was accessed, as well as daily and by the hour stats for the entire account. With both sorts of stats, you can 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 after you have applied some update.
