The CPU load depends on the amount of time a web server spends executing a script when a visitor opens a page on a certain script-driven Internet site. Static HTML sites use barely any CPU time, but this isn't so with the considerably more complex and functional scripts, that use a database and display dynamic content. The more individuals open this sort of a site, the more load shall be created on the server and if the database is large, the MySQL server will be loaded too. A good example of what may cause high load is an online store with a huge number of products. If it is popular, lots of people shall be browsing it simultaneously and if they seek out items, the entire database that contains all of the products shall also be continuously accessed by the script, resulting in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load stats 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 potent hosting solution - if the site is extremely popular and the current setup can't cope with the load.
MySQL & Load Stats in Web Hosting
Our system keeps detailed info about the system resource usage of each web hosting account that is set up on our top-notch cloud platform, so in case you choose to host your sites with us, you'll have full access to this info from the Hepsia CP, which you shall get with the account. The CPU load stats feature the CPU time and the actual execution time of your scripts, as well as how much system memory they used. You can also see what processes produced the load - PHP or Perl scripts, cron jobs, etc. The MySQL load statistics section will show you the amount of queries to each individual database that you have created within your shared hosting account, the total queries for the account as a whole and the standard hourly rate. Comparing these numbers to the visitor statistics shall tell you if your Internet sites perform the way they should or if they require some optimization, which will improve their overall performance and the overall site visitor experience.
MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll be able to access quite detailed CPU and MySQL load data that will give you more information about the general performance of your websites. Two sections of the Hepsia CP are committed to the stats, one for every single type. Within the CPU Load section you could see the execution time of your scripts and the length of time the server processed them. Additionally you can see the types of processes that were executed. Stats are produced every 6 hours, but if necessary, you could also check statistics for previous days or months. The MySQL Load section will show you the total amount of database queries per day and each hour, plus the queries to each individual database that you have inside your semi-dedicated account. Comparing this information to your traffic statistics will give you valuable information about how your websites perform and you will determine if you have to take some measures to boost them.
