Whenever a visitor opens your website, the web browser sends a request to the server, which executes it and supplies the desired content as a response. A basic HTML website uses very little system resources due to the fact that it is static, but database-driven platforms are more demanding and use a lot more processing time. Every page which is served generates 2 sorts of load - CPU load, which depends on the span of time the web server spends executing a specific script; and MySQL load, which depends on the amount of database queries generated by the script while the user browses the Internet site. Higher load shall be generated if loads of people surf a certain Internet site concurrently or if loads of database calls are made all at once. 2 good examples are a discussion board with thousands of users or an online store in which a client enters a term within a search box and a large number of items are searched. Having thorough statistics about the load your website generates can help you optimize the content or see if it is time to switch to a more powerful type of hosting service, if the website is simply getting quite popular.

MySQL & Load Stats in Shared Web Hosting

Our system keeps comprehensive information about the system resource usage of every single shared web hosting account that is set up on our top-notch cloud platform, so in case you decide to host your Internet sites with our company, you'll have full access to this data via the Hepsia Control Panel, which you shall get with the account. The CPU load stats feature the CPU time and the actual execution time of your scripts, plus the amount of system memory they used. You may also see what processes produced the load - PHP or Perl scripts, cron jobs, and so forth. The MySQL load statistics section will show you the amount of queries to each individual database that you've created inside your shared hosting account, the total queries for the account altogether and the standard hourly rate. Comparing these figures to the website visitor stats will tell you if your sites perform the way they need to or if they require some optimization, that will improve their functionality and the overall website visitor experience.

MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you need to see thorough statistics with regards to the load produced by your sites, it will not take more than a couple of clicks to do that. The Hepsia hosting CP, included with all semi-dedicated servers we offer, has a section committed to the system resource usage and the data there will tell you if your Internet sites operate properly and if the load they generate corresponds to the amount of received website visitors. The CPU load stats include the script execution time and the length of time it took for the hosting server to process the requests, plus what sorts of processes generated the load. The MySQL statistics will show you how often every database was accessed, and also daily and by the hour data for the entire account. With both sorts of statistics, you can check the numbers for every one of the past days and months, so you can easily see how sites perform as the traffic to them grows or after you have applied some update.
