If you have an HTML Internet site, it probably uses a small amount of resources simply because it is static, but this is not so with dynamic database-driven sites that use PHP scripts and offer you a lot more features. This sort of websites create load on the hosting server when someone browses them, since the hosting server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to provide the information requested by the visitor's browser. A well-known discussion board, as an illustration, stores all usernames and posts within a database, so some load is generated every time a thread is opened or an end user searches for a particular name. If a lot of people connect to the forum at the same time, or if each and every search involves checking thousands of database entries, this may generate high load and affect the functionality of the Internet site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load data can give you info about the site’s functionality, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic data to determine if the website needs to be optimized or migrated to a new kind of website hosting platform that will be able to bear the high system load if the Internet site is very popular.

MySQL & Load Stats in Cloud Hosting

Using the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all our cloud hosting packages, you'll be able to see really detailed stats about the system resources that your websites use. One of the sections shall give you details about the CPU load, like the amount of processing time the hosting server spent, how much time it took for your scripts to be executed and the amount of memory they used. Statistics are routinely created every 6 hours and you may also see the different types of processes that produced the most load - PHP, Perl, etc. MySQL load stats are listed in an individual section in which you could see all the queries on a per hour, daily, etc. basis. You could go back and compare stats from different months to see if some update has changed the resource usage if the total amount of site visitors has not changed much. This way, you can see if your Internet site needs to be optimized, which will contribute to a better performance and an improved user experience.

MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you want to see detailed statistics for the load generated by your Internet sites, it won't take more than a few clicks to do that. The Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all semi-dedicated servers that we offer, features a section dedicated to the system resource usage and the data there will tell you if your sites operate properly and if the load they create corresponds to the number of received visitors. The CPU load data include the script execution time and the length of time it took for the web server to process the requests, and also what types of processes generated the load. The MySQL data shall show you the number of times each database was accessed, and also day-to-day and hourly data for the entire account. With both types of stats, you'll be able to check the numbers for every one of the past days and months, so you can see how the sites perform as the traffic to them increases or once you've applied some update.
