The CPU load depends on the time a server spends executing a script any time a visitor opens a page on a certain script-driven Internet site. Static HTML Internet sites use barely any CPU time, but it's not the case with the significantly more advanced and functional scripts, that use a database and display dynamic content. The more customers open this kind of a website, the more load will be produced on the web server and if the database is large, the MySQL server shall be loaded as well. A good example of what could cause high load is a web-based store with a large number of products. If it's popular, many people will be exploring it simultaneously and if they search for items, the entire database which contains all the products shall also be frequently accessed by the script, resulting in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load data can provide 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 site is very popular and the existing setup cannot cope with the load.
MySQL & Load Stats in Website Hosting
Using the Hepsia Control Panel, included with all of our website hosting offers, you shall be able to to see rather comprehensive data regarding the system resources your sites use. One of the sections shall give you info on the CPU load, such as how much processing time the hosting server spent, the amount of time it took for your scripts to be executed and the amount of memory they used. Stats are consistently provided every six hours and you could also see the different kinds of processes that generated the most load - PHP, Perl, and so on. MySQL load statistics are listed inside a different section where you'll be able to see all the queries on an hourly, day-to-day, and so on. basis. You could go back and compare stats from different months to see if some update has changed the resource usage if the total amount of site visitors has not changed much. This way, you can see if your site needs to be optimized, that will contribute to a better general performance and an improved user experience.
MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you need to see detailed stats with regards to the load generated by your Internet sites, it will not take more than a few clicks to do this. The Hepsia hosting CP, provided with all semi-dedicated servers that we offer, has a section focused on the system resource usage and the data there shall tell you if your Internet sites operate properly and if the load they generate corresponds to the amount of received visitors. The CPU load stats include the script execution time and the amount of time it took for the server to process the requests, plus what sorts of processes created the load. The MySQL data shall show you the number of times every database was accessed, plus everyday and hourly statistics for the whole account. With both sorts of statistics, you'll be able to check the numbers for every one of the past days and months, so you can easily see how the sites perform as the traffic to them increases or once you've applied some update.
