The CPU load depends upon the time a hosting server spends executing a script any time a visitor opens a page on a given script-driven site. Static HTML Internet sites use hardly any CPU time, but it's not the case with the far more sophisticated and functional scripts, that use a database and display dynamic content. The more customers open such a site, the more load will be produced on the web server and if the database is large, the MySQL server shall be loaded as well. An example of what may cause high load is an online store with thousands of products. If it's popular, plenty of people shall be exploring it simultaneously and if they search for items, the whole database containing all the products will also be continuously accessed by the script, which will result in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load statistics will provide you with an idea of how the site is doing, if it has to be optimized or if you simply just need a more powerful hosting solution - if the site is very popular and the existing setup can't handle the load.

MySQL & Load Stats in Shared Web Hosting

Using the Hepsia CP, included with all of our shared web hosting plans, you'll be able to see incredibly detailed stats about the system resources your sites use. One of the sections will give you information about the CPU load, such as the amount of processing time the hosting server spent, the span of time it took for your scripts to be executed and how much memory they used. Stats are routinely produced every six hours and you could also see the different types of processes that produced the most load - PHP, Perl, and so forth. MySQL load data are listed in a separate section in which you can see all the queries on a per hour, daily, etc. basis. You can go back and compare data from various months to determine if some update has altered the resource usage if the amount of site visitors has not changed much. That way, you can determine if your website needs to be optimized, that will contribute to a better general performance and an improved user experience.

MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall be able to access very detailed CPU and MySQL load statistics that'll give you additional information about the overall performance of your sites. Two sections of the Hepsia Control Panel are focused on the stats, one for each and every type. Within the CPU Load section you can see the execution time of your scripts and the length of time the server processed them. You can even see the kinds of processes that were executed. Stats are created every 6 hours, but if required, you may also check statistics for previous days or months. The MySQL Load section will show you the whole number of database queries daily and on an hourly basis, along with the queries to each individual database which you have within your semi-dedicated account. Comparing this information to your traffic statistics will give you important info about how your sites perform and you shall see if you need to take some measures to boost them.
