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 that isn't the situation with dynamic database-driven websites that use PHP scripts and offer a lot more features. This type of sites produce load on the website hosting server each time anyone browses them, simply because the server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to supply the data requested by the visitor's browser. A famous discussion board, for instance, stores all usernames and posts inside a database, so some load is generated any time a thread is opened or a user looks for a particular word. If lots of people access the forum at the same time, or if each and every search involves checking thousands of database entries, this may produce high load and affect the efficiency of the Internet site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load stats can give you data about the site’s overall performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic statistics to decide if the website must be optimized or moved to another kind of web hosting platform that'll be able to bear the high system load if the Internet site is extremely popular.
MySQL & Load Stats in Shared Hosting
If you host your websites in a shared hosting
account with us, you'll have access to thorough CPU and MySQL data that will enable you to monitor their performance. You are able to see the stats with a number of clicks within your Hepsia CP. The CPU Load section will show you the total time the web server spent on your scripts and how much memory was required, plus the time it took for the scripts to be executed. The day-to-day view is the default one, but you can also see the data from the past months. The MySQL Load section give you additional information about the amount of queries to every database that you have set up in the account. Once again, you are able to see month-to-month, day-to-day and per hour statistics, that'll give you info that's different from the traffic or the number of visitors which you get. In this way, you can identify if the sites need some optimization.
MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you would like to see thorough stats with regards to the load generated by your sites, it won't take more than just a few clicks to do that. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all semi-dedicated servers
that we offer, has a section dedicated to the system resource usage and the information there will tell you if your websites function properly and if the load they create corresponds to the amount of received visitors. The CPU load statistics include the script execution time and the length of time it took for the web server to process the requests, plus what kinds of processes generated the load. The MySQL statistics will show you how frequently every single database was accessed, and daily and by the hour stats for the whole account. With both types of stats, you'll be able to check the numbers for each of the past days and months, so you can easily see how the websites perform as the traffic to them rises or after you have applied some update.
