The CPU load depends upon the amount of time a server spends executing a script each time a visitor opens a page on a particular script-driven website. Static HTML websites use barely any CPU time, but this isn't the situation with the much more complex and functional scripts, which use a database and display dynamic content. The more clients open such an Internet site, the more load shall be generated on the server and if the database is very large, the MySQL server will be loaded too. An illustration of what may cause high load is a web-based store with a huge number of products. If it is popular, plenty of people shall be visiting it all at once and if they look for items, the whole database containing all the products shall also be frequently accessed by the script, which will result in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load data will offer you an idea of how the site is doing, if it has to be optimized or if you simply just need a more efficient hosting solution - if the site is extremely popular and the existing setup cannot deal with the load.
MySQL & Load Stats in Shared Hosting
Our system keeps detailed information about the system resource usage of each and every shared hosting account that is created on our top-notch cloud platform, so given that you choose to host your sites with us, you'll have full access to this data from the Hepsia CP, which you'll get with the account. The CPU load statistics feature the CPU time and the actual execution time of your scripts, and how much system memory they used. You may also see what processes generated the load - PHP or Perl scripts, cron jobs, and so on. The MySQL load stats section will show you the number of queries to each individual database you have created in your shared hosting account, the total queries for the account overall and the typical hourly rate. Comparing these numbers to the website visitor statistics shall tell you if your Internet sites perform the way they need to or if they require some optimization, which will improve their functionality and the overall website visitor experience.
MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you shall be able to access quite detailed CPU and MySQL load data that will give you more information about the functionality of your websites. Two sections of the Hepsia Control Panel are focused on the statistics, one for every type. In the CPU Load section you are able to see the execution time of your scripts and the amount of time the server processed them. You can even see the types of processes that were executed. Stats are produced every 6 hours, but if needed, you can also check stats for previous days or months. The MySQL Load section shall show you the total number of database queries each day and each hour, as well as the queries to each individual database you have inside your semi-dedicated account. Comparing this information to your traffic statistics shall give you important information about how your Internet sites perform and you shall see if you need to take some measures to improve them.
