If you have an HTML website, it probably uses a small amount of resources as it's static, but this isn't so with dynamic database-driven websites that use PHP scripts and offer considerably more capabilities. This sort of Internet sites produce load on the web hosting server each and every time anyone browses them, as the server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to supply the data requested by the visitor's Internet browser. A well-known discussion board, for example, stores all usernames and posts within a database, so some load is created each time a thread is opened or an end user looks for a certain phrase. If lots of people connect to the forum simultaneously, or if each and every search involves checking thousands of database entries, this could generate high load and affect the functionality of the website. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load stats can give you data about the site’s overall performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic statistics to make a decision if the website needs to be optimized or moved to a different type of hosting platform that'll be able to bear the high system load in case the site is extremely popular.

MySQL & Load Stats in Website Hosting

Using the Hepsia CP, bundled with all our website hosting plans, you'll be able to see rather comprehensive statistics regarding the system resources which your websites use. One of the sections will give you details about the CPU load, like how much processing time the web server spent, the span of time it took for your scripts to be executed and the amount of memory they used. Stats are routinely generated every 6 hours and you may also see the different kinds of processes that produced the most load - PHP, Perl, and so on. MySQL load stats are listed within an individual section where you could see all the queries on an hourly, daily, etc. basis. You can go back and compare stats from various months to find out whether some update has changed the resource usage if the amount of visitors hasn't changed much. This way, you will see if your website needs to be optimized, which will give you a better general performance and an improved user experience.

MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Servers

Due to the fact that our system keeps in depth statistics for the load which each semi-dedicated server account generates, you will be aware of how your Internet sites perform at any time. Once you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, included with each account, you can check out the section committed to the system load. In it, you will see the processing time our system spent on your scripts, the span of time it took for the scripts to be actually executed and what kinds of processes produced the load - cron jobs, PHP pages, Perl scripts, and so on. You could also see the total number of queries to each database in your semi-dedicated account, the total daily numbers for the account as a whole, plus the average hourly rate. With both the CPU and the MySQL load statistics, you can always go back to past days or months and evaluate the functionality of your sites after some update or after a substantial boost in the number of your website visitors.
