If you have an HTML website, most likely it uses a very small amount of system resources simply because it is static, but that isn't so with dynamic database-driven websites that use PHP scripts and provide you with much more features. Such sites generate load on the web hosting server every time someone browses them, since the web server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to deliver the info requested by the visitor's Internet browser. A popular discussion board, as an illustration, stores all usernames and posts inside a database, so some load is generated each time a thread is opened or a user looks for a specific name. If lots of people connect to the forum concurrently, or if each search involves checking a large number of database entries, this may create high load and affect the functionality of the Internet site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load statistics can give you information about the site’s efficiency, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic stats to decide if the website has to be optimized or transferred to a different sort of hosting platform that will be able to bear the high system load in case the website is extremely popular.

MySQL & Load Stats in Cloud Hosting

Using the Hepsia CP, which comes with all our cloud hosting offers, you will be able to see incredibly detailed data concerning the system resources that your sites use. One of the sections shall give you information about the CPU load, such as the amount of processing time the hosting server spent, the span of time it took for your scripts to be executed and how much memory they used. Statistics are automatically produced every 6 hours and you may also see the kinds of processes that produced the most load - PHP, Perl, and so forth. MySQL load statistics are listed within an individual section in which you are able to see all the queries on an hourly, day-to-day, etc. basis. You could go back and compare stats from various months to find out whether some update has changed the resource usage if the number of website visitors hasn't changed much. That way, you will see if your website needs to be optimized, that will result in a better functionality and an improved user experience.

MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our system creates in depth stats about the two different types of load, so if you buy a semi-dedicated server for your websites, you can access the info with just a couple of clicks in your Hepsia hosting CP. Each kind of data is listed inside its own section. The CPU Load section shall tell you which processes produced the load and the amount of time it took for the hosting server to execute every one of the requests. Though stats are created every six hours, you can see daily and month-to-month stats too. In the MySQL Load section you'll find a list of all the databases created in your semi-dedicated account manually and automatically, what amount of queries were sent to each of them, the total daily queries for the account as a whole, plus the average hourly rate. This data will help you determine how well your websites perform and if each of them requires optimization of some kind.
