The CPU load depends on the amount of time a server spends executing a script each time a visitor opens a page on a specific script-driven website. Static HTML Internet sites use barely any CPU time, but this is not so with the much more sophisticated and functional scripts, which use a database and display dynamic content. The more people open this sort of a site, the more load will be generated on the hosting server and if the database is big, the MySQL server will be loaded also. An example of what can cause high load is an online store with a large number of products. If it is popular, lots of people shall be browsing it all at once and if they seek out items, the entire database containing all of the products will also be constantly accessed by the script, resulting in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load statistics will provide you with an idea of how the site is doing, if it has to be optimized or if you simply need a more powerful website hosting solution - if the website is popular and the established setup can't handle the load.

MySQL & Load Stats in Shared Hosting

Using the Hepsia CP, provided with all our shared hosting packages, you'll be able to see really comprehensive data regarding the system resources which your sites use. One of the sections shall give you information about the CPU load, including how much processing time the server spent, the span of time it took for your scripts to be executed and what amount of memory they used. Stats are consistently generated every six hours and you may also see the kinds of processes that produced the most load - PHP, Perl, and so forth. MySQL load data are listed within a separate section in which you could see all the queries on an hourly, day-to-day, and so on. basis. You could go back and compare stats from various months to determine if some update has changed the resource usage if the total amount of website visitors hasn't changed much. Thus, you can determine if your Internet site needs to be optimized, which 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 our company, you'll be able to access rather detailed CPU and MySQL load stats which will give you more info about the functionality of your websites. Two sections of the Hepsia CP are focused on the statistics, one for each and every kind. In the CPU Load section you could see the execution time of your scripts and the amount of time the web server processed them. You may also see the different types of processes that were executed. Statistics are generated every 6 hours, but if needed, you may also check statistics for previous days or months. The MySQL Load section will show you the entire amount of database queries each day and each hour, plus the queries to each individual database you have within your semi-dedicated account. Comparing this data to your traffic statistics will give you important information about how your Internet sites perform and you shall see if you have to take some measures to optimize them.
