The CPU load depends on the length of time a server spends executing a script every time a visitor opens a page on a particular script-driven website. Static HTML websites use barely any CPU time, but this isn't the situation with the much more complex and functional scripts, which use a database and display dynamic content. The more people open such a website, the more load will be produced on the hosting 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 a web-based store with a large number of products. If it's popular, plenty of people shall be browsing it at the same time and if they seek out items, the entire database containing all of the products will also be continuously accessed by the script, resulting in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load stats will give you an idea of how the website is doing, if it needs to be optimized or if you simply just need a more powerful hosting solution - if the website is extremely popular and the existing setup can't deal with the load.

MySQL & Load Stats in Web Hosting

Using the Hepsia CP, bundled with all our web hosting offers, you shall be able to to see rather comprehensive stats regarding the resources your sites use. One of the sections shall give you info on the CPU load, like the amount of processing time the server spent, the span of time it took for your scripts to be executed and exactly how much memory they used. Stats are consistently created every 6 hours and you could also see the different types of processes that generated the most load - PHP, Perl, etc. MySQL load data are listed within a different section where you'll be able to see all the queries on a per hour, everyday, and so forth. basis. You'll be able to go back and compare stats from different months to see if some update has altered the resource usage if the number of visitors hasn't changed much. That way, you can see if your website needs to be optimized, that'll give you a better functionality and an improved user experience.

MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you need to see in depth stats about the load created by your Internet sites, it won't take more than several mouse clicks to do this. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, included with all semi-dedicated servers that we offer, features a section focused on the system resource usage and the data there will tell you if your Internet sites operate properly and if the load they produce corresponds to the amount of received website visitors. The CPU load stats include the script execution time and the length of time it took for the server to process the requests, as well as what sorts of processes produced the load. The MySQL stats shall show you the number of times each individual database was accessed, plus everyday and hourly statistics for the whole account. With both kinds of stats, you'll be able to check the numbers for every one of the past days and months, so you can see how sites perform as the traffic to them grows or once you've applied some update.
