The CPU load depends upon the length of time a web server spends executing a script whenever a visitor opens a page on a specific script-driven site. Static HTML websites use hardly any CPU time, but it's not the situation with the significantly more advanced and functional scripts, that use a database and display dynamic content. The more individuals open this kind of a site, the more load will be generated on the server and if the database is big, the MySQL server shall be loaded as well. An example of what could cause high load is an online store with a huge number of products. If it's popular, plenty of people will be browsing it concurrently and if they look for items, the entire database that contains all the products shall also be frequently accessed by the script, which will result in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load data will offer you an idea of how the site is doing, if it needs to be optimized or if you just need a more efficient web hosting solution - if the Internet site is really popular and the existing setup cannot cope with the load.

MySQL & Load Stats in Hosting

Using the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all our hosting plans, you'll be able to see rather detailed statistics regarding the resources which your Internet sites use. One of the sections shall give you details about the CPU load, including the amount of processing time the web server spent, the length of time it took for your scripts to be executed and how much memory they used. Statistics are routinely produced every 6 hours and you can also see the different types of processes that produced the most load - PHP, Perl, and so on. MySQL load stats are listed within a separate section in which you can see all the queries on an hourly, daily, etc. basis. You can go back and compare stats from different months to determine if some update has transformed the resource usage if the amount of visitors hasn't changed much. That way, you can see if your site needs to be optimized, which will contribute to a better general performance and an improved user experience.

MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Servers

As our system keeps in depth statistics for the load that every semi-dedicated server account generates, you will be aware of how your sites perform at any time. After you log in to the Hepsia CP, included with every single account, you can check out the section devoted to the system load. There, you can 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 kinds of processes created the load - cron jobs, PHP pages, Perl scripts, etcetera. Also you can see the amount of queries to every single database within your semi-dedicated account, the total everyday statistics for the account as a whole, as well as the average hourly rate. With both the CPU and the MySQL load stats, you could always go back to past days or months and review the efficiency of your sites after some update or after a sizeable boost in the number of your site visitors.
