The CPU load depends on the length of time a server spends executing a script whenever a visitor opens a webpage on a specific script-driven Internet site. Static HTML Internet sites use barely any CPU time, but this is not the case with the far more sophisticated and functional scripts, which use a database and display dynamic content. The more clients open such a website, the more load will be created on the server and if the database is very large, the MySQL server will be loaded as well. An illustration of what can cause high load is an online store with a large number of products. If it is popular, many people shall be visiting it all at once and if they look for items, the entire database which contains all the products will also be continuously accessed by the script, resulting in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load stats will provide you with an idea of how the site is doing, if it needs to be optimized or if you just need a more powerful web hosting solution - if the site is really popular and the current setup can't cope with the load.

MySQL & Load Stats in Website Hosting

Using the Hepsia CP, provided with all our website hosting plans, you'll be able to see rather detailed data about the resources your sites use. One of the sections shall give you information about the CPU load, like the amount of processing time the web server spent, the span of time it took for your scripts to be executed and exactly how much memory they used. Stats are automatically created every six hours and you can also see the types of processes that produced the most load - PHP, Perl, and so on. MySQL load data are listed in a different section in which you'll be able to see all the queries on a per hour, daily, and so on. basis. You can go back and compare stats from various months to find out whether some update has changed the resource usage if the total amount of visitors has not changed much. That way, you will see if your Internet site needs to be optimized, which will contribute to a better functionality and an improved user experience.

MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to access quite comprehensive CPU and MySQL load statistics that'll give you more information about the functionality of your websites. Two sections of the Hepsia CP are focused on the statistics, one for every type. Within the CPU Load section you could see the execution time of your scripts and the amount of time the server processed them. Additionally you can see the types of processes which were executed. Statistics are created every 6 hours, but if necessary, you could also check stats for previous days or months. The MySQL Load section shall show you the entire amount of database queries each day and each hour, and also the queries to each individual database you have in your semi-dedicated account. Comparing this data to your traffic stats shall give you valuable data about how your Internet sites perform and you will see if you must take some measures to optimize them.
