If you have an HTML site, it likely uses a small amount of system resources simply because it's static, but this is not the case with dynamic database-driven websites that use PHP scripts and offer much more capabilities. Such sites generate load on the web hosting server each time someone browses them, as the hosting server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to supply the data requested by the visitor's browser. A popular discussion board, as an illustration, stores all usernames and posts in a database, so some load is generated every time a thread is opened or a user looks for a given term. If lots of people connect to the forum all at once, or if every search involves checking a large number of database entries, this can produce high load and affect the overall performance of the Internet site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load statistics can provide you with info about the site’s overall performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic stats to make a decision if the website must be optimized or moved to a new sort of website hosting platform that will be able to bear the high system load if the website is extremely popular.

MySQL & Load Stats in Cloud Web Hosting

If you host your Internet sites within a cloud web hosting account with our company, you shall have access to comprehensive CPU and MySQL stats which will allow you to keep tabs on their overall performance. You can easily see the statistics with a couple of clicks inside your Hepsia CP.

The day-to-day view is the default one, but you'll be able to also see the data from the previous months. The MySQL Load section offer more details about the total amount of queries to every database that you have set up in the account. Once again, you can easily see month-to-month, day-to-day and hourly stats, that will give you info that's different from the traffic or the number of visitors which you get. This way, you can determine if the websites require some optimization.

MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you would like to see in depth statistics with regards to the load produced by your Internet sites, it won't take more than just a few mouse clicks to do that. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided with all semi-dedicated servers which we offer, features a section dedicated to the system resource usage and the info there can tell you if your sites operate properly and if the load they create corresponds to the amount of received visitors. The CPU load statistics include the script execution time and the time it took for the hosting server to process the requests, and also what sorts of processes created the load. The MySQL statistics shall show you the number of times every database was accessed, plus day-to-day and hourly statistics for the entire account. With both forms of statistics, you can check the numbers for any of the past days and months, so you could see how sites perform as the traffic to them increases or after you have applied some update.
