The CPU load depends upon the time a hosting server spends executing a script when a visitor opens a page on a particular script-driven site. Static HTML Internet sites use hardly any CPU time, but this is not so with the much more complex and functional scripts, that use a database and display dynamic content. The more customers open this sort of a site, the more load will be created on the server and if the database is large, the MySQL server shall be loaded as well. A good example of what can cause high load is an online store with a large number of products. If it's popular, plenty of people will be browsing it simultaneously and if they seek out items, the whole database which contains all the products shall also be frequently accessed by the script, which will result in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load data will give you an idea of how the site is doing, if it has to be optimized or if you simply just need a more powerful web hosting solution - if the Internet site is extremely popular and the current setup cannot deal with the load.

MySQL & Load Stats in Cloud Hosting

Using the Hepsia CP, provided with all our cloud hosting packages, you will be able to see rather comprehensive data regarding the resources your sites use. One of the sections will give you info on the CPU load, such as how much processing time the server spent, the length of time it took for your scripts to be executed and how much memory they used. Stats are consistently generated every 6 hours and you may also see the kinds of processes that generated the most load - PHP, Perl, etc. MySQL load stats are listed in a different section where you are able to see all the queries on a per hour, day-to-day, and so forth. basis. You could go back and compare statistics from various months to find out whether some update has changed the resource usage if the number of website visitors has not changed much. In this way, you can see if your website needs to be optimized, that will lead to a better performance and an improved user experience.

MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you want to see comprehensive statistics for the load produced by your websites, it will not take more than a couple of mouse clicks to do that. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, supplied with all semi-dedicated servers we offer, has a section dedicated to the system resource usage and the data there can tell you if your websites operate properly and if the load they create corresponds to the total amount of received website visitors. The CPU load statistics include the script execution time and how much time it took for the web server to process the requests, as well as what kinds of processes produced the load. The MySQL statistics will show you how many times each individual database was accessed, and daily and per hour statistics for the entire account. With both kinds of statistics, you'll be able to check the numbers for any of the past days and months, so you can see how the websites perform as the traffic to them grows or once you've applied some update.
