The CPU load depends on the time a hosting server spends executing a script whenever a visitor opens a webpage on a particular script-driven website. Static HTML Internet sites use barely any CPU time, but it's not the case with the significantly more sophisticated and functional scripts, that use a database and display dynamic content. The more people open such an Internet site, the more load shall be generated 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 an Internet store with thousands of products. If it is popular, a lot of people shall be visiting it all at once and if they seek out items, the whole database containing all of the products will also be constantly 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 website is doing, if it needs to be optimized or if you just need a more powerful web hosting solution - if the website is very popular and the existing setup cannot handle the load.
MySQL & Load Stats in Hosting
If you host your websites in a hosting account with our company, you shall have access to comprehensive CPU and MySQL stats that will enable you to keep an eye on their operation. You are able to see the statistics with several mouse clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. The CPU Load section can tell you the total time the hosting server spent on your scripts and what amount of memory was needed, and the time it took for the scripts to be executed. The day-to-day view is the standard one, but you may also see the numbers from the preceding months. The MySQL Load section offer more details about the total amount of queries to each and every database that you have created in the account. Once again, you can easily see per month, daily and per hour data, that'll give you data that's different from the traffic or the number of visitors you get. This way, you can determine if the websites need some optimization.
MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Because our system keeps thorough stats for the load which each semi-dedicated server account generates, you will be aware of how your sites perform at any time. When you log in to the Hepsia CP, included with each account, you should check out the section devoted to the system load. In it, you are able to 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 sorts of processes produced the load - cron jobs, PHP pages, Perl scripts, etc. Also you can see the number of queries to every database inside your semi-dedicated account, the total day-to-day stats for the account altogether, plus the average hourly rate. With both the CPU and the MySQL load stats, you can always go back to past days or months and review the performance of your sites after some update or after a substantial rise in the number of your website visitors.
