If you have an HTML site, it likely uses a very small amount of resources simply because it's static, but this is not so with dynamic database-driven sites that use PHP scripts and offer you a lot more features. This type of sites generate load on the web hosting server every time someone browses them, since the web server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to supply the information requested by the visitor's browser. A well-known discussion board, for instance, stores all usernames and posts in a database, so some load is created every time a thread is opened or an end user looks for a specific term. If a lot of people access the forum concurrently, or if each and every search involves checking tens of thousands of database entries, this may create high load and affect the efficiency of the website. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load stats can provide you with info about the site’s functionality, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic data and see if the Internet site has to be optimized or transferred to a new sort of web hosting platform that will be able to bear the high system load if the site is very popular.
MySQL & Load Stats in Website Hosting
Our system keeps comprehensive info about the system resource usage of every website hosting account which is created on our top-notch cloud platform, so in case you opt to host your websites with our company, you'll have full access to this info from the Hepsia Control Panel, which you'll get with the account. The CPU load statistics feature the CPU time and the actual execution time of your scripts, along with how much system memory they used. You may also see what processes generated the load - PHP or Perl scripts, cron jobs, and so on. The MySQL load statistics section will show you the total amount queries to each particular database you have created within your shared hosting account, the total queries for the account in general and the standard hourly rate. Comparing these numbers to the website visitor statistics shall tell you if your Internet sites perform the way they should or if they require some optimization, that will improve their performance and the overall visitor experience.
MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you would like to see in depth statistics with regards to the load generated by your websites, it won't take more than a couple of mouse clicks to do that. The Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all semi-dedicated servers which we offer, has a section committed to the system resource usage and the information there can tell you if your sites operate properly and if the load they generate corresponds to the total amount of received website visitors. The CPU load stats include the script execution time and the span of time it took for the hosting server to process the requests, plus what sorts of processes created the load. The MySQL statistics will show you the number of times each individual database was accessed, and everyday and per hour stats for the entire account. With both forms of statistics, you can check the numbers for every one of the past days and months, so you can see how sites perform as the traffic to them grows or after you have applied some update.
