The CPU load depends on the length of time a web server spends executing a script any time a visitor opens a webpage on a specific script-driven Internet site. Static HTML Internet sites use hardly any CPU time, but it is not the situation with the significantly more advanced and functional scripts, which use a database and display dynamic content. The more individuals open this sort of an Internet site, the more load will be created on the hosting server and if the database is big, the MySQL server shall be loaded also. An example of what may cause high load is an Internet store with a huge number of products. If it is popular, plenty of people shall be visiting it simultaneously and if they seek out items, the whole database that contains all of the products shall also be continuously accessed by the script, resulting in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load stats can provide an idea of how the website is doing, if it has to be optimized or if you simply need a more powerful website hosting solution - if the site is really popular and the current setup can't handle the load.
MySQL & Load Stats in Web Hosting
Using the Hepsia CP, included with all of our web hosting
plans, you shall be able to to see rather comprehensive stats concerning the system resources your sites use. One of the sections shall give you details about the CPU load, such as how much processing time the server spent, the time it took for your scripts to be executed and how much memory they used. Stats are routinely generated every six hours and you could also see the different kinds of processes that generated the most load - PHP, Perl, etc. MySQL load data are listed in a separate section where you'll be able to see all the queries on an hourly, everyday, and so forth. basis. You can go back and compare statistics from different months to see if some update has changed the resource usage if the total amount of site visitors hasn't changed much. That way, you can see if your Internet site needs to be optimized, that'll give you a better functionality and an improved user experience.
MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you would like to see thorough statistics regarding the load produced by your sites, it won't take more than just a few clicks to do this. The Hepsia hosting CP, included with all semi-dedicated servers
that we offer, has a section dedicated to the system resource usage and the data there shall tell you if your sites function properly and if the load they produce corresponds to the total amount of received visitors. The CPU load statistics include the script execution time and the amount of time it took for the server to process the requests, as well as what types of processes generated the load. The MySQL data will show you how often every database was accessed, plus everyday and per hour stats for the whole account. With both kinds of stats, you'll be able to check the numbers for any of the past days and months, so you can easily see how sites perform as the traffic to them increases or once you've applied some update.
