Every time a visitor opens your website, the Internet browser sends a request to the web server, which in turn executes it and gives the required content as a response. A simple HTML website uses minimal system resources as it's static, but database-driven platforms are more demanding and use much more processing time. Every single page which is served creates 2 types of load - CPU load, which depends on the length of time the web server spends executing a specific script; and MySQL load, that depends on the number of database queries created by the script while the customer browses the Internet site. Higher load shall be produced if many people browse a particular website all at once or if a considerable amount of database calls are made at the same time. Two examples are a discussion board with many users or an online store in which a client enters a term in a search box and tens of thousands of items are searched. Having thorough data about the load your site generates will allow you to optimize the content or see if it is time to switch to a more powerful kind of website hosting service, if the site is simply getting really popular.

MySQL & Load Stats in Cloud Web Hosting

Our system keeps detailed info about the system resource usage of each cloud web hosting account that's created on our top-notch cloud platform, so in case you choose to host your sites with our company, you'll have full access to this data through the Hepsia Control Panel, which you shall get with the account. The CPU load stats include the CPU time and the actual execution time of your scripts, and what amount of system memory they used. You may also see what processes created the load - PHP or Perl scripts, cron jobs, and so forth. The MySQL load data section will show you the total amount queries to each particular database you have created within your shared hosting account, the total queries for the account in general and the average hourly rate. Comparing these figures to the website visitor stats shall tell you if your sites perform the way they should or if they require some optimization, that'll improve their overall performance and the overall website visitor experience.

MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you want to see thorough stats with regards to the load produced by your websites, it won't take more than just a few clicks to do this. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all semi-dedicated servers which we offer, features a section focused on the system resource usage and the data there shall tell you if your sites function properly and if the load they generate corresponds to the total amount of received website visitors. The CPU load statistics include the script execution time and the span of time it took for the server to process the requests, as well as what kinds of processes produced the load. The MySQL data shall show you the number of times every database was accessed, plus everyday and per hour data for the entire account. With both kinds of statistics, you'll be able to check the numbers for every one of the past days and months, so you can see how the websites perform as the traffic to them rises or once you've applied some update.
