If you have an HTML site, most likely it uses a very small amount of system resources simply because it is static, but that isn't the situation with dynamic database-driven sites that use PHP scripts and provide you with way more capabilities. This type of sites produce load on the website hosting server every time someone browses them, simply because the web server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to provide the content requested by the visitor's web browser. A well-known discussion board, for example, stores all usernames and posts inside a database, so some load is produced every time a thread is opened or a user looks for a given word. If lots of people connect to the forum simultaneously, or if every search involves checking a large number of database entries, this could produce high load and affect the overall performance of the website. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load data can give you information about the site’s functionality, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic data and see if the website has to be optimized or transferred to a new type of website hosting platform that will be able to bear the high system load in case the website is very popular.

MySQL & Load Stats in Shared Hosting

Using the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all of our shared hosting plans, you will be able to see incredibly detailed stats about the resources that your Internet sites use. One of the sections will give you details about the CPU load, such as the amount of processing time the hosting server spent, the amount of time it took for your scripts to be executed and exactly how much memory they used. Stats are consistently generated every six hours and you can also see the kinds of processes that produced the most load - PHP, Perl, and so forth. MySQL load data are listed inside a different section in which you can see all the queries on a per hour, daily, etc. basis. You'll be able to go back and compare stats from various months to find out whether some update has changed the resource usage if the amount of website visitors has not changed much. That way, you can determine if your website needs to be optimized, that will contribute to a better functionality and an improved user experience.

MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you would like to see in depth stats with regards to the load produced by your Internet sites, it will not take more than a couple of clicks to do that. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, supplied with all semi-dedicated servers we offer, has a section devoted to the system resource usage and the information there can tell you if your websites function properly and if the load they create corresponds to the number of received site visitors. The CPU load statistics include the script execution time and the amount of time it took for the hosting server to process the requests, plus what types of processes generated the load. The MySQL statistics shall show you how frequently each individual database was accessed, and everyday and per hour statistics for the entire account. With both types of stats, you are able to check the numbers for every one of the past days and months, so you could see how the sites perform as the traffic to them increases or after you have applied some update.
