If you have an HTML site, it likely 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 a lot more features. This type of websites generate load on the web hosting server every time somebody browses them, since the hosting server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to deliver the info requested by the visitor's web browser. A famous discussion board, as an illustration, stores all usernames and posts in a database, so some load is generated every single time a thread is opened or an end user looks for a given phrase. If many people access the forum concurrently, or if each and every search involves checking tens of thousands of database entries, this may produce high load and affect the efficiency of the website. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load statistics can provide information about the site’s efficiency, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic stats to make a decision if the site must be optimized or moved to another type of website hosting platform that will be able to bear the high system load if the site is popular.
MySQL & Load Stats in Shared Hosting
If you host your sites within a shared hosting account with our company, you'll have access to comprehensive CPU and MySQL stats that will allow you to keep track of their functionality. You can easily see the statistics with several mouse clicks in your Hepsia CP. The CPU Load section can tell you the total time period the hosting server spent on your scripts and what amount of memory was needed, and the time it took for the scripts to be executed. The daily view is the standard one, but you can also see the numbers from the preceding months. The MySQL Load section will provide you with more details about the number of queries to every database that you have created in the account. Once again, you can easily see monthly, day-to-day and hourly statistics, that'll give you information that is different from the traffic or the number of visitors you get. In this way, you can see if the Internet sites require some optimization.
MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you need to see detailed statistics for the load produced by your sites, it won't take more than just a few mouse clicks to do this. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, supplied with all semi-dedicated servers that we offer, features a section focused on the system resource usage and the data there can tell you if your websites operate properly and if the load they generate corresponds to the amount of received visitors. The CPU load stats include the script execution time and the span of time it took for the web server to process the requests, plus what sorts of processes produced the load. The MySQL stats shall show you how often every database was accessed, and day-to-day and per hour stats for the entire account. With both types of statistics, you'll be able to check the numbers for each of the past days and months, so you could see how the sites perform as the traffic to them rises or once you've applied some update.
