The CPU load depends on the time a hosting server spends executing a script every time a visitor opens a webpage on a given script-driven website. Static HTML Internet sites use barely any CPU time, but this isn't the case with the considerably more advanced and functional scripts, that use a database and display dynamic content. The more people open such a site, the more load shall be created on the server and if the database is large, the MySQL server shall be loaded too. An example of what can cause high load is a web-based store with tens of thousands of products. If it is popular, many people will be browsing it simultaneously and if they search for items, the whole database containing all of the products will also be frequently accessed by the script, which will result in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load statistics will give you an idea of how the Internet site is doing, if it has to be optimized or if you simply just need a more powerful hosting solution - if the site is really popular and the current setup can't handle the load.
MySQL & Load Stats in Shared Hosting
If you host your sites in a shared hosting account with us, you shall have access to comprehensive CPU and MySQL data that will permit you to keep tabs on their performance. You can easily see the data with a few mouse clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The CPU Load section can tell you the total time the web server spent on your scripts and just how much memory was needed, as well as the time it took for the scripts to be executed. The daily view is the standard one, but you could also see the statistics from the preceding months. The MySQL Load section give you more details about the number of queries to every database that you have set up inside the account. Once again, you can see per month, day-to-day and hourly stats, that will give you information that's different from the traffic or the number of visitors that you get. In this way, you can see if the Internet sites need some optimization.
MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Servers
As our system keeps detailed statistics for the load that every semi-dedicated server account produces, you shall be aware of how your websites perform at any time. After you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, included with every single account, you can check out the section devoted to the system load. In it, you will see the processing time our system spent on your scripts, the time it took for the scripts to be actually executed and what sorts of processes created the load - cron jobs, PHP pages, Perl scripts, etc. You may also see the total number of queries to every single database inside your semi-dedicated account, the total everyday stats for the account as a whole, plus the average hourly rate. With both the CPU and the MySQL load statistics, you can always go back to past days or months and examine the general performance of your websites after some update or after a major increase in the number of your website visitors.
