The CPU load depends on the length of time a web server spends executing a script when a visitor opens a webpage on a particular script-driven site. Static HTML sites use hardly any CPU time, but this is not the situation with the far more sophisticated and functional scripts, which use a database and display dynamic content. The more clients open this type of an Internet site, the more load shall be created on the server and if the database is big, the MySQL server shall be loaded also. A good example of what can cause high load is an Internet store with a large number of products. If it is popular, plenty of people will be browsing it all at once and if they seek out 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 offer you an idea of how the website is doing, if it needs to be optimized or if you simply need a more efficient web hosting solution - if the site is really popular and the current setup cannot deal with the load.
MySQL & Load Stats in Website Hosting
Using the Hepsia CP, which comes with all our website hosting offers, you'll be able to see incredibly comprehensive stats concerning the system resources your sites use. One of the sections will give you information about the CPU load, such as the amount of processing time the hosting server spent, the length of time it took for your scripts to be executed and what amount of memory they used. Statistics are consistently generated every 6 hours and you may also see the kinds of processes that produced the most load - PHP, Perl, and so on. MySQL load data are listed inside a separate section where you are able to see all the queries on a per hour, daily, etc. basis. You'll be able to go back and compare data from different months to find out if some update has changed the resource usage if the number of website visitors hasn't changed much. This way, you will see if your Internet site needs to be optimized, that will lead to a better general performance 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 quite detailed CPU and MySQL load data that'll give you more information about the general performance of your sites. Two sections of the Hepsia Control Panel are focused on the statistics, one for each and every kind. Within the CPU Load section you could see the execution time of your scripts and how much time the hosting server processed them. You may also see the kinds of processes which were executed. Stats are produced every six hours, but if required, you may also check statistics for previous days or months. The MySQL Load section shall show you the total number of database queries daily and per hour, as well as the queries to each individual database which you have in your semi-dedicated account. Comparing this info to your traffic statistics shall give you valuable data about how your Internet sites perform and you will see if you have to take some measures to improve them.
