The CPU load depends upon the length of time a web server spends executing a script whenever a visitor opens a page on a particular script-driven website. Static HTML sites use barely any CPU time, but this is not so with the significantly more sophisticated and functional scripts, which use a database and display dynamic content. The more individuals open such a website, the more load shall be created on the server and if the database is big, the MySQL server shall be loaded too. An example of what may cause high load is an Internet store with thousands of products. If it is popular, a lot of people will be browsing it at the same time and if they seek out items, the entire database containing all of the products will also be continuously accessed by the script, resulting in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load stats can provide an idea of how the site is doing, if it needs to be optimized or if you simply need a more powerful hosting solution - if the site is really popular and the existing setup can't handle the load.

MySQL & Load Stats in Hosting

Using the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all our hosting plans, you shall be able to to see very comprehensive statistics regarding the system resources your sites use. One of the sections will give you information regarding the CPU load, including the amount of processing time the server spent, how much time it took for your scripts to be executed and the amount of memory they used. Statistics are routinely generated every six hours and you could also see the types of processes that generated the most load - PHP, Perl, and so forth. MySQL load stats are listed within a different section in which you could see all the queries on a per hour, day-to-day, etc. basis. You could go back and compare statistics from different months to determine if some update has altered the resource usage if the number of website visitors has not changed much. In this way, you can determine if your Internet site needs to be optimized, that'll lead to a better overall performance and an improved user experience.

MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you would like to see comprehensive statistics for the load created by your websites, it will not take more than several mouse clicks to do that. The Hepsia hosting CP, supplied with all semi-dedicated servers we offer, has a section committed to the system resource usage and the data there shall tell you if your sites perform well and if the load they create corresponds to the total amount of received website visitors. The CPU load statistics include the script execution time and the length of time it took for the machine to process the requests, and what sorts of processes generated the load. The MySQL stats shall show you how many times each database was accessed, plus daily and per hour data for the entire account. With both sorts of stats, you are able to check the numbers for each of the past days and months, so you can see how the websites perform as the traffic to them rises or once you've applied some update.
