If you have an HTML site, it likely uses a very small amount of system resources because it is static, but this isn't the case with dynamic database-driven sites that use PHP scripts and provide you with a lot more functions. This type of sites produce load on the web hosting server each and every time someone browses them, simply because the hosting server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to supply the information requested by the visitor's web browser. A famous discussion board, as an illustration, stores all usernames and posts in a database, so some load is generated every single time a thread is opened or a user searches for a specific name. If a lot of people connect to the forum at the same time, or if each and every search involves checking thousands of database entries, this could create high load and affect the functionality of the site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load stats can provide information about the site’s overall performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic statistics to make a decision if the Internet site should be optimized or moved to another type of web hosting platform which will be able to bear the high system load in case the Internet site is very popular.

MySQL & Load Stats in Website Hosting

Using the Hepsia CP, bundled with all of our website hosting plans, you'll be able to see very comprehensive statistics about the resources that your sites use. One of the sections will give you details about the CPU load, including how much processing time the hosting server spent, the time it took for your scripts to be executed and the amount of memory they used. Stats are routinely generated every 6 hours and you could also see the different types of processes that generated the most load - PHP, Perl, and so on. MySQL load stats are listed within a different section in which you could see all the queries on an hourly, everyday, and so on. basis. You could go back and compare data from different months to find out if some update has altered the resource usage if the total amount of visitors has not changed much. This way, you can determine if your site needs to be optimized, which will lead to a better general performance and an improved user experience.

MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Because our system keeps detailed statistics for the load which each semi-dedicated server account produces, you will be aware of how your sites perform at any time. When you log in to the Hepsia CP, included with every single account, you can go to the section committed to the system load. In it, you are able to see the processing time our system spent on your scripts, the length of time it took for the scripts to be actually executed and what sorts of processes created the load - cron jobs, PHP pages, Perl scripts, etcetera. You could also see the number of queries to every database in your semi-dedicated account, the total daily numbers for the account overall, along with the average hourly rate. With both the CPU and the MySQL load data, you could always go back to past days or months and examine the performance of your Internet sites after some update or after a substantial rise in the number of your visitors.
