If you have an HTML site, most likely it uses a very small amount of resources simply because it's static, but this is not the situation with dynamic database-driven websites that use PHP scripts and offer far more features. This type of sites generate load on the website hosting server every time anyone browses them, since the web server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to supply the info requested by the visitor's browser. A famous discussion board, as an illustration, stores all usernames and posts within a database, so some load is generated each time a thread is opened or an end user looks for a particular phrase. If many people connect to the forum concurrently, or if each and every search involves checking a large number of database entries, this may create high load and affect the efficiency of the Internet site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load statistics can provide info about the site’s overall performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic data to make a decision if the website has to be optimized or migrated to a different type of hosting platform that'll be able to bear the high system load if the site is very popular.
MySQL & Load Stats in Hosting
If you host your Internet sites inside a hosting account with us, you shall have access to thorough CPU and MySQL stats that will allow you to keep track of their performance. You can easily see the data with a couple of mouse clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. The CPU Load section will show you the total time frame the server spent on your scripts and what amount of memory was required, plus the time it took for the scripts to be executed. The daily view is the default one, but you can also see the numbers from the preceding months. The MySQL Load section offer you more info about the number of queries to every single database that you have set up within the account. Once again, you are able to see month-to-month, day-to-day and per hour statistics, which will give you info that's different from the traffic or the number of visitors that you get. This way, you can identify if the websites require some optimization.
MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you need to see in depth stats about the load produced by your websites, it will not take more than a couple of mouse clicks to do that. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided with all semi-dedicated servers which we offer, features a section focused on the system resource usage and the info there shall tell you if your websites operate properly and if the load they produce corresponds to the number of received website visitors. The CPU load data include the script execution time and the span of time it took for the machine to process the requests, and what types of processes generated the load. The MySQL data shall show you how many times every database was accessed, as well as everyday and hourly stats for the whole account. With both kinds of stats, you are able to check the numbers for each of the past days and months, so you could see how sites perform as the traffic to them increases or once you've applied some update.
