The CPU load depends upon the amount of time a server spends executing a script every time a visitor opens a webpage on a specific script-driven Internet site. Static HTML websites use hardly any CPU time, but it's not the situation with the far more complex and functional scripts, which use a database and display dynamic content. The more people open such a site, the more load will be created on the web server and if the database is big, the MySQL server shall be loaded as well. An illustration of what could cause high load is a web-based store with thousands of products. If it is popular, a lot of people shall be exploring it all at once and if they look for items, the entire database which contains all of the products will also be constantly accessed by the script, which will result 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 has to be optimized or if you simply just need a more powerful web hosting solution - if the website is really popular and the established setup cannot deal with the load.

MySQL & Load Stats in Shared Website Hosting

Our system keeps detailed information about the system resource usage of every shared website hosting account which is set up on our top-notch cloud platform, so if you decide to host your sites with us, you will have full access to this information from the Hepsia CP, which you will get with the account. The CPU load stats include the CPU time and the actual execution time of your scripts, along with the amount of system memory they used. You could also see what processes produced the load - PHP or Perl scripts, cron jobs, etc. The MySQL load data section will show you the number of queries to each individual database which you have created within your shared hosting account, the total queries for the account as a whole and the typical hourly rate. Comparing these figures to the site visitor stats shall tell you if your websites perform the way they have to or if they require some optimization, that'll improve their overall performance and the overall visitor experience.

MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you would like to see in depth stats regarding the load created by your sites, it won't take more than several mouse clicks to do that. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all semi-dedicated servers which we offer, has a section devoted to the system resource usage and the data there will tell you if your websites operate properly and if the load they generate corresponds to the total amount of received website visitors. The CPU load data include the script execution time and how much time it took for the machine to process the requests, and also what types of processes produced the load. The MySQL data will show you how often each individual database was accessed, and daily and hourly stats for the entire account. With both types of statistics, you'll be able to check the numbers for any 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.
