The CPU load is dependent upon the length of time a web server spends executing a script when a visitor opens a page on a specific script-driven site. Static HTML sites use hardly any CPU time, but this isn't so with the much more complex and functional scripts, which use a database and display dynamic content. The more individuals open such a website, the more load shall be generated on the server and if the database is big, the MySQL server will be loaded also. A good example of what can cause high load is an Internet store with tens of thousands of products. If it's popular, a lot of people shall be exploring it at the same time and if they look for items, the whole database which contains all the products shall also be continuously accessed by the script, resulting in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load statistics will provide you with an idea of how the website is doing, if it needs to be optimized or if you simply need a more powerful web hosting solution - if the website is very popular and the existing setup cannot cope with the load.

MySQL & Load Stats in Cloud Hosting

Using the Hepsia Control Panel, included with all of our cloud hosting packages, you'll be able to see rather comprehensive data about the resources which your Internet sites use. One of the sections shall give you info on the CPU load, such as the amount of processing time the server spent, the amount of time it took for your scripts to be executed and the amount of memory they used. Stats are routinely produced every 6 hours and you may also see the different kinds of processes that produced the most load - PHP, Perl, and so on. MySQL load statistics are listed in an individual section in which you are able to see all the queries on an hourly, daily, etc. basis. You could go back and compare data from various months to determine if some update has altered the resource usage if the number of visitors hasn't changed much. This way, you can determine if your Internet site needs to be optimized, which will result in a better functionality 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 generates, you will be aware of how your Internet sites perform at any time. As soon as you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with every account, you can go to the section devoted to the system load. There, you can 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 kinds of processes generated the load - cron jobs, PHP pages, Perl scripts, etcetera. You may also see the number of queries to every single database within your semi-dedicated account, the total daily statistics for the account altogether, plus the average hourly rate. With both the CPU and the MySQL load statistics, you may always go back to past days or months and evaluate the functionality of your sites after some update or after a substantial boost in the number of your site visitors.
