The CPU load depends upon the time a server spends executing a script each time a visitor opens a webpage on a given script-driven website. Static HTML sites use barely any CPU time, but it's not so with the significantly more advanced and functional scripts, which use a database and display dynamic content. The more customers open this type of a website, the more load shall be produced on the server and if the database is large, the MySQL server shall be loaded as well. A good example of what may cause high load is an online store with a large number of products. If it is popular, lots of people shall be visiting it at the same time and if they search for items, the entire database that contains all of the products shall also be frequently accessed by the script, which will result in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load statistics will offer you an idea of how the website is doing, if it needs to be optimized or if you simply need a more potent website hosting solution - if the website is very popular and the current setup cannot deal with the load.

MySQL & Load Stats in Website Hosting

Using the Hepsia Control Panel, included with all our website hosting packages, you shall be able to to see really comprehensive stats about the system resources which your Internet sites use. One of the sections will give you info on the CPU load, including how much processing time the server spent, the amount of time it took for your scripts to be executed and what amount of memory they used. Statistics are routinely provided every six hours and you can also see the types of processes that produced the most load - PHP, Perl, etc. MySQL load stats are listed in a different section in which you are able to see all the queries on an hourly, daily, etc. basis. You can go back and compare statistics from different months to see if some update has altered the resource usage if the total amount of visitors hasn't changed much. In this way, you can see if your site needs to be optimized, that will contribute to a better overall performance and an improved user experience.

MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Because our system keeps in depth stats for the load which each semi-dedicated server account produces, you shall be aware of how your websites perform at any time. After you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each account, you should check out the section committed to the system load. There, you can easily see the processing time our system spent on your scripts, the span of time it took for the scripts to be actually executed and what sorts of processes generated the load - cron jobs, PHP pages, Perl scripts, etc. You may also see the number of queries to each database in your semi-dedicated account, the total daily numbers for the account overall, plus the average hourly rate. With both the CPU and the MySQL load statistics, you can always go back to past days or months and evaluate the overall performance of your websites after some update or after a considerable increase in the number of your site visitors.
