The CPU load depends upon the length of time a server spends executing a script every time a visitor opens a webpage on a certain script-driven Internet site. Static HTML Internet sites use hardly any CPU time, but it's not so with the much more complex and functional scripts, that use a database and display dynamic content. The more clients open this sort of a site, the more load shall be produced 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 is popular, a lot of people will be browsing it simultaneously and if they search for items, the entire database containing all of the products shall also be continuously accessed by the script, resulting 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 just need a more powerful web hosting solution - if the Internet site is very popular and the established setup can't cope with the load.

MySQL & Load Stats in Cloud Web Hosting

Using the Hepsia Control Panel, bundled with all our cloud web hosting packages, you shall be able to to see really detailed data regarding the system resources which your sites use. One of the sections shall give you information about the CPU load, including the amount of processing time the web server spent, the length of time it took for your scripts to be executed and what amount of memory they used. Stats are consistently generated every 6 hours and you can also see the different types of processes that produced the most load - PHP, Perl, and so on. MySQL load stats are listed inside a different section where you can see all the queries on a per hour, everyday, etcetera. basis. You'll be able to go back and compare statistics from different months to find out if some update has transformed the resource usage if the total amount of website visitors hasn't changed much. That way, you can determine if your website needs to be optimized, that will contribute to a better functionality and an improved user experience.

MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall be able to access very detailed CPU and MySQL load statistics that'll give you addiitional information about the functionality of your websites. Two sections of the Hepsia CP are focused on the stats, one for every kind. Within the CPU Load section you can see the execution time of your scripts and how much time the web server processed them. You can even see the kinds of processes which were executed. Statistics are created every six hours, but if necessary, you may also check stats for previous days or months. The MySQL Load section shall show you the total number of database queries per day and on an hourly basis, plus the queries to each individual database that you have inside your semi-dedicated account. Comparing this data to your traffic stats will give you valuable info about how your Internet sites perform and you will determine if you have to take some measures to improve them.
