The CPU load is dependent upon the amount of time a hosting server spends executing a script when a visitor opens a page on a certain script-driven website. Static HTML sites use barely any CPU time, but this is not the situation with the significantly more sophisticated and functional scripts, that use a database and display dynamic content. The more people open this sort of a site, the more load shall be created on the server and if the database is big, the MySQL server shall be loaded as well. An example of what may cause high load is a web-based store with a huge number of products. If it is popular, a lot of people shall be visiting it at the same time and if they seek out items, the whole database that contains all of the products will also be constantly accessed by the script, resulting in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load stats will provide you with an idea of how the website is doing, if it has to be optimized or if you simply just need a more powerful web hosting solution - if the website is really popular and the current setup can't cope with the load.

MySQL & Load Stats in Cloud Web Hosting

Using the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all our cloud web hosting offers, you shall be able to to see rather comprehensive statistics regarding the resources which your websites use. One of the sections will give you information regarding the CPU load, such as the amount of processing time the web server spent, how much time it took for your scripts to be executed and exactly how much memory they used. Statistics are automatically created every six hours and you could also see the kinds of processes that produced the most load - PHP, Perl, etc. MySQL load stats are listed inside a separate section in which you could see all the queries on an hourly, daily, etc. basis. You could go back and compare data from various months to find out whether some update has transformed the resource usage if the amount of site visitors has not changed much. That way, you can determine if your site needs to be optimized, which will lead to a better functionality and an improved user experience.

MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you would like to see thorough stats about the load produced by your Internet sites, it won't take more than several mouse clicks to do this. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all semi-dedicated servers that we offer, features a section committed to the system resource usage and the information there can tell you if your sites perform well and if the load they create corresponds to the amount of received site visitors. The CPU load data include the script execution time and the time it took for the hosting server to process the requests, as well as what sorts of processes created the load. The MySQL statistics will show you how many times each individual database was accessed, and day-to-day and hourly data for the entire account. With both forms of statistics, you can check the numbers for each of the past days and months, so you could see how sites perform as the traffic to them grows or once you've applied some update.
