If you have an HTML site, in all probability it uses a small amount of resources due to the fact that it is static, but this is not the situation with dynamic database-driven Internet sites that use PHP scripts and offer far more features. Such sites generate load on the website hosting server each and every time someone browses them, because the web server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to deliver the content requested by the visitor's browser. A widely used discussion board, for example, stores all usernames and posts inside a database, so some load is generated every single time a thread is opened or a user looks for a specific word. If lots of people access the forum all at once, or if each and every search involves checking thousands of database entries, this can produce high load and affect the functionality of the Internet site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load statistics can give you data about the site’s functionality, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic stats to make a decision if the Internet site must be optimized or transferred to a different sort of website hosting platform which will be able to bear the high system load if the site is extremely popular.
MySQL & Load Stats in Hosting
Using the Hepsia Control Panel, bundled with all of our hosting
offers, you'll be able to see very detailed stats concerning the resources which your sites use. One of the sections will give you details about the CPU load, including how much processing time the hosting server spent, how much time it took for your scripts to be executed and how much memory they used. Stats are automatically produced every six hours and you can also see the kinds of processes that generated the most load - PHP, Perl, etc. MySQL load data are listed in a separate section where you could see all the queries on an hourly, daily, etc. basis. You can go back and compare data from various months to find out whether some update has altered the resource usage if the total amount of visitors has not changed much. That way, you can determine if your website needs to be optimized, that will result in a better overall performance and an improved user experience.
MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Hosting
As our system keeps comprehensive stats for the load that each semi-dedicated server
account produces, you will be aware of how your Internet sites perform at any time. Once you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with each account, you can go to the section committed to the system load. In it, you will see the processing time our system spent on your scripts, the length of time it took for the scripts to be actually executed and what types of processes generated the load - cron jobs, PHP pages, Perl scripts, etcetera. You could also see the total number of queries to every database in your semi-dedicated account, the total daily numbers for the account altogether, and also the average hourly rate. With both the CPU and the MySQL load statistics, you can always go back to past days or months and compare the general performance of your websites after some update or after a major increase in the number of your site visitors.
