The CPU load is dependent upon the length of time a server spends executing a script every time a visitor opens a page on a particular script-driven website. Static HTML sites use barely any CPU time, but it is not so with the considerably more sophisticated and functional scripts, which use a database and display dynamic content. The more clients open this kind of an Internet site, the more load will be produced on the server and if the database is large, the MySQL server shall be loaded as well. A good example of what could cause high load is a web-based store with thousands of products. If it is popular, many people shall be visiting it simultaneously and if they look for items, the whole database that contains all the products will also be continuously accessed by the script, which will result in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load stats can provide an idea of how the Internet site is doing, if it needs to be optimized or if you simply need a more potent web hosting solution - if the website is extremely popular and the current setup cannot cope with the load.
MySQL & Load Stats in Shared Website Hosting
Our system keeps detailed info about the system resource usage of every shared website hosting account that is created on our top-notch cloud platform, so in case you opt to host your Internet sites with us, you will have full access to this data via the Hepsia CP, which you will get with the account. The CPU load stats include the CPU time and the actual execution time of your scripts, and the amount of system memory they used. You can also see what processes produced the load - PHP or Perl scripts, cron jobs, and so on. The MySQL load stats section will show you the amount of queries to each particular database that you have created inside your shared hosting account, the total queries for the account altogether and the standard hourly rate. Comparing these figures to the site visitor statistics will tell you if your Internet sites perform the way they ought to or if they require some optimization, that will improve their performance and the overall website visitor experience.
MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you want to see in depth statistics for the load created by your Internet sites, it will not take more than several clicks to do this. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all semi-dedicated servers we offer, has a section devoted to the system resource usage and the data there shall tell you if your websites perform well and if the load they produce corresponds to the amount of received visitors. The CPU load data include the script execution time and the amount of time it took for the server to process the requests, plus what types of processes produced the load. The MySQL statistics shall show you the number of times each database was accessed, plus everyday and per hour statistics for the entire account. With both sorts of stats, you can check the numbers for any of the past days and months, so you could see how the sites perform as the traffic to them increases or after you have applied some update.
