If you have an HTML Internet site, in all probability it uses a very small amount of system resources because it is static, but this isn't the situation with dynamic database-driven sites that use PHP scripts and provide you with far more features. This type of sites generate load on the hosting server each time someone browses them, because the hosting server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to deliver the information requested by the visitor's web browser. A well-known discussion board, for instance, stores all usernames and posts within a database, so some load is produced each time a thread is opened or an end user searches for a given phrase. If many people connect to the forum at the same time, or if each and every search involves checking a large number of database entries, this could generate high load and affect the overall performance of the Internet site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load data can provide data about the site’s performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic data to make a decision if the site has to be optimized or transferred to another type of website hosting platform that will be able to bear the high system load if the site is extremely popular.

MySQL & Load Stats in Website Hosting

Using the Hepsia Control Panel, bundled with all our website hosting offers, you'll be able to see incredibly detailed statistics about the system resources your Internet sites use. One of the sections will give you information about the CPU load, like how much processing time the server spent, how much time it took for your scripts to be executed and the amount of memory they used. Stats are consistently generated every six hours and you can also see the different types of processes that generated the most load - PHP, Perl, and so on. MySQL load stats are listed in an individual section in which you could see all the queries on a per hour, daily, etcetera. basis. You could go back and compare data from different months to see if some update has altered the resource usage if the amount of website visitors hasn't changed much. This way, you will see if your Internet site needs to be optimized, that will contribute to a better overall performance and an improved user experience.

MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Since our system keeps thorough stats for the load that every semi-dedicated server account generates, you shall 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 can see the processing time our system spent on your scripts, how much 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 could also see the total number of queries to each and every database inside your semi-dedicated account, the total everyday statistics for the account as a whole, as well as the average hourly rate. With both the CPU and the MySQL load data, you could always go back to past days or months and assess the general performance of your websites after some update or after a sizeable rise in the number of your visitors.
