When a visitor opens your site, the browser sends a request to the web server, which in turn executes it and gives the necessary data as a response. A standard HTML Internet site uses very little system resources as it is static, but database-driven platforms are more demanding and use far more processing time. Every single webpage which is served generates 2 kinds of load - CPU load, which depends on the length of time the web server spends executing a particular script; and MySQL load, which depends on the number of database queries generated by the script while the end user browses the website. Higher load will be produced if a considerable amount of people look through a certain site all at once or if loads of database calls are made concurrently. 2 good examples are a discussion board with a huge number of users or an online store in which a visitor enters a term within a search box and tens of thousands of items are searched. Having comprehensive data about the load that your website generates will allow you to boost the content or see if it's time to switch to a more powerful kind of hosting service, if the Internet site is simply getting extremely popular.

MySQL & Load Stats in Web Hosting

Our system keeps comprehensive information about the system resource usage of each web hosting account that is created on our top-notch cloud platform, so given that you decide to host your sites with our company, you'll have full access to this data via 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, as well as how much system memory they used. You could also see what processes generated the load - PHP or Perl scripts, cron jobs, etcetera. 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 as a whole and the standard hourly rate. Comparing these statistics to the site visitor statistics shall tell you if your Internet sites perform the way they should or if they need some optimization, which will improve their performance and the overall visitor experience.

MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you would like to see thorough stats about the load produced by your websites, it won't take more than a couple of mouse clicks to do this. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all semi-dedicated servers that we offer, features a section committed to the system resource usage and the data there can tell you if your Internet sites function properly and if the load they produce corresponds to the amount of received site visitors. The CPU load statistics include the script execution time and the time it took for the hosting server to process the requests, and also what types of processes produced the load. The MySQL statistics shall show you how often each individual database was accessed, as well as day-to-day and hourly statistics for the entire account. With both types of stats, you'll be able to check the numbers for any of the past days and months, so you can see how sites perform as the traffic to them rises or after you have applied some update.
