The CPU load depends upon the time period a server spends executing a script any time a visitor opens a webpage on a particular script-driven site. Static HTML sites use hardly any CPU time, but this isn't the case with the significantly more complex and functional scripts, that use a database and display dynamic content. The more customers open such a site, the more load will be generated on the web server and if the database is big, the MySQL server shall be loaded as well. An illustration of what may cause high load is an Internet store with a huge number of products. If it's popular, many people shall be browsing it simultaneously and if they seek out items, the entire database containing all the products shall also be constantly accessed by the script, which will result in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load statistics will give you an idea of how the site is doing, if it needs to be optimized or if you simply just need a more efficient web hosting solution - if the Internet site is very popular and the current setup can't handle the load.
MySQL & Load Stats in Cloud Website Hosting
If you host your sites within a cloud website hosting account with our company, you shall have access to comprehensive CPU and MySQL data that will enable you to keep track of their overall performance. You are able to see the stats with a couple of clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The CPU Load section will show you the total time frame the hosting server spent on your scripts and what amount of memory was required, and the time it took for the scripts to be executed. The daily view is the default one, but you'll be able to also see the data from the past months. The MySQL Load section offer additional information about the number of queries to each database that you have created in the account. Once again, you can easily see per month, day-to-day and per hour stats, which will give you info which is different from the traffic or the number of visitors which you get. In this way, you can see if the sites require some optimization.
MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Because our system keeps thorough stats for the load which each semi-dedicated server account generates, you will be aware of how your sites perform at any time. As soon as you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each account, you can go to the section dedicated to the system load. There, you are able to see the processing time our system spent on your scripts, the amount of time it took for the scripts to be actually executed and what types of processes generated the load - cron jobs, PHP pages, Perl scripts, etc. You may also see the amount of queries to each and every database within your semi-dedicated account, the total day-to-day figures for the account as a whole, plus the average hourly rate. With both the CPU and the MySQL load stats, you can always go back to past days or months and evaluate the general performance of your sites after some update or after a sizeable rise in the number of your website visitors.
