If you have an HTML Internet site, it likely uses a really small amount of system resources simply because it is static, but this isn't the situation with dynamic database-driven websites that use PHP scripts and offer you considerably more functions. Such websites generate load on the hosting server each and every time anyone browses them, as the server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to provide the content requested by the visitor's web browser. A famous discussion board, for instance, stores all usernames and posts in a database, so some load is created any time a thread is opened or a user looks for a certain name. If many people connect to the forum simultaneously, or if each and every search involves checking thousands of database entries, this could produce high load and affect the performance of the site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load stats can present you with data about the site’s performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic stats to decide if the site has to be optimized or moved to a different sort of web hosting platform which will be able to bear the high system load in the event that the Internet site is very popular.

MySQL & Load Stats in Shared Hosting

Using the Hepsia CP, included with all our shared hosting offers, you'll be able to see incredibly detailed stats regarding the system resources your websites use. One of the sections will give you information about the CPU load, including the amount of processing time the hosting server spent, the time it took for your scripts to be executed and how much memory they used. Stats are routinely provided every six hours and you could also see the different types of processes that generated the most load - PHP, Perl, and so on. MySQL load data are listed within an individual section in which you'll be able to see all the queries on a per hour, day-to-day, and so on. basis. You could go back and compare stats from different months to determine if some update has altered the resource usage if the amount of visitors hasn't changed much. This way, you can determine if your website needs to be optimized, which will lead to a better general performance and an improved user experience.

MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you want to see detailed statistics about the load generated by your websites, it won't take more than a few clicks to do this. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all semi-dedicated servers which we offer, features a section dedicated to the system resource usage and the data there shall tell you if your sites function properly and if the load they produce corresponds to the amount of received visitors. The CPU load data include the script execution time and how much time it took for the web server to process the requests, and also what sorts of processes generated the load. The MySQL stats shall show you how often each database was accessed, and day-to-day and per hour statistics for the entire account. With both types of stats, you can check the numbers for any of the past days and months, so you can easily see how the websites perform as the traffic to them increases or once you've applied some update.
