If you have an HTML website, it probably uses a really small amount of resources because it is static, but that isn't the situation with dynamic database-driven sites that use PHP scripts and provide much more features. Such websites create load on the website hosting server when somebody browses them, due to the fact that the hosting server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to deliver the info requested by the visitor's Internet browser. A widely used discussion board, as an illustration, stores all usernames and posts within a database, so some load is generated each time a thread is opened or an end user looks for a specific term. If lots of people access the forum all at once, or if every single search involves checking tens of thousands of database entries, this could create high load and affect the overall performance of the website. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load stats can provide you with information about the site’s efficiency, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic data to decide if the site should be optimized or migrated to a new type of hosting platform which will be able to bear the high system load if the site is extremely popular.

MySQL & Load Stats in Shared Hosting

Our system keeps comprehensive info about the system resource usage of every shared hosting account that is created on our top-notch cloud platform, so in case you opt to host your Internet sites with us, you'll have full access to this information via the Hepsia Control Panel, which you shall get with the account. The CPU load stats include 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 created the load - PHP or Perl scripts, cron jobs, and so forth. The MySQL load data section will show you the amount of queries to each particular database that you've created inside your shared hosting account, the total queries for the account as a whole and the typical hourly rate. Comparing these statistics to the website visitor statistics will tell you if your sites perform the way they ought to or if they require some optimization, which will improve their performance and the overall website 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 comprehensive CPU and MySQL load stats that'll give you more info about the overall performance of your websites. Two sections of the Hepsia Control Panel are committed to the statistics, one for every kind. Within the CPU Load section you could see the execution time of your scripts and the span of time the server processed them. Additionally you can see the types of processes that were executed. Statistics are produced every six hours, but if necessary, you may also check data for previous days or months. The MySQL Load section will show you the whole amount of database queries each day and each hour, plus the queries to each individual database which you have inside your semi-dedicated account. Comparing this info to your traffic stats shall give you useful data about how your sites perform and you shall see if you need to take some measures to optimize them.
