The CPU load depends upon the amount of time a server spends executing a script every time a visitor opens a page on a specific script-driven website. Static HTML sites use hardly any CPU time, but this is not the case with the much more sophisticated and functional scripts, which use a database and display dynamic content. The more individuals open this type of a website, the more load will be generated on the hosting server and if the database is big, the MySQL server will be loaded too. A good example of what can cause high load is a web-based store with tens of thousands of products. If it is popular, plenty of people shall be browsing it concurrently and if they search for items, the entire database which contains all of the products will also be continuously accessed by the script, which will result in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load stats can provide an idea of how the Internet site is doing, if it has to be optimized or if you simply just need a more powerful website hosting solution - if the site is extremely popular and the existing setup can't handle the load.
MySQL & Load Stats in Website Hosting
Using the Hepsia Control Panel, bundled with all our website hosting packages, you'll be able to see really comprehensive statistics regarding the resources your Internet sites use. One of the sections will give you information regarding the CPU load, like how much processing time the hosting server spent, the length of time it took for your scripts to be executed and what amount of memory they used. Stats are consistently created 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 data are listed within a separate section in which you are able to 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 determine if some update has transformed the resource usage if the amount of website visitors has not changed much. Thus, you will see if your Internet site needs to be optimized, that will contribute to a better performance and an improved user experience.
