The CPU load depends upon the time a server spends executing a script any time a visitor opens a webpage on a certain script-driven site. Static HTML websites use barely any CPU time, but it's not so with the considerably more sophisticated and functional scripts, which use a database and display dynamic content. The more customers open this type of a website, the more load will be created on the hosting server and if the database is very large, the MySQL server will be loaded also. An example of what may cause high load is an online store with a large number of products. If it's popular, many people shall be browsing it concurrently and if they search for items, the whole database containing all of the products will also be constantly accessed by the script, resulting in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load data can provide an idea of how the site is doing, if it needs to be optimized or if you simply need a more powerful hosting solution - if the Internet site is very popular and the existing setup can't deal with the load.

MySQL & Load Stats in Web Hosting

Using the Hepsia Control Panel, included with all our web hosting packages, you shall be able to to see rather comprehensive stats about the system resources that your websites use. One of the sections shall give you info on the CPU load, such as the amount of processing time the web server spent, the span of time it took for your scripts to be executed and what amount of memory they used. Stats are automatically produced every six hours and you can also see the different types of processes that produced the most load - PHP, Perl, and so forth. MySQL load statistics are listed within a separate section in which you can see all the queries on an hourly, daily, etcetera. basis. You could go back and compare data from various months to find out whether some update has altered the resource usage if the total amount of site visitors has not changed much. This way, you will see if your Internet site needs to be optimized, which will contribute to a better performance and an improved user experience.

MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll be able to access really detailed CPU and MySQL load stats that'll give you more information about the functionality of your sites. Two sections of the Hepsia Control Panel are dedicated to the stats, one for every single kind. Inside the CPU Load section you are able to see the execution time of your scripts and the length of time the web server processed them. You can also see the kinds of processes which were executed. Stats are created every six hours, but if needed, you can also check stats for previous days or months. The MySQL Load section shall show you the entire amount of database queries each day and on an hourly basis, along with the queries to each individual database which you have within your semi-dedicated account. Comparing this info to your traffic stats will give you valuable info about how your sites perform and you will see if you have to take some measures to boost them.
