Whenever a visitor opens your Internet site, the Internet browser sends a request to the web server, which executes it and provides the desired content as a response. A simple HTML site uses very little resources because it's static, but database-driven platforms are more demanding and use far more processing time. Every page that's served generates 2 kinds of load - CPU load, which depends on the span of time the hosting server spends executing a particular script; and MySQL load, that depends on the amount of database queries produced by the script while the user browses the website. Higher load shall be generated if many people browse a particular site simultaneously or if numerous database calls are made simultaneously. Two illustrations are a discussion board with a large number of users or an online store in which a customer enters a term inside a search box and thousands of items are searched. Having in depth data about the load your website generates can help you boost the content or see if it's time for you to switch to a more powerful kind of website hosting service, if the Internet site is simply getting quite popular.
MySQL & Load Stats in Shared Web Hosting
Our system keeps detailed info about the system resource usage of every shared web hosting account that's created on our top-notch cloud platform, so in case you opt to host your sites with us, you will have full access to this info through the Hepsia Control Panel, which you will get with the account. The CPU load stats feature the CPU time and the actual execution time of your scripts, plus how much system memory they used. You could also see what processes created the load - PHP or Perl scripts, cron jobs, and so on. The MySQL load data section will show you the total amount queries to each individual database that you've created inside your shared hosting account, the total queries for the account in general and the typical hourly rate. Comparing these figures to the site visitor statistics shall tell you if your sites perform the way they have to or if they require some optimization, that will improve their efficiency and the overall website visitor experience.
MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you need to see in depth stats regarding the load generated by your websites, it will not take more than a couple of clicks to do this. The Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all semi-dedicated servers which we offer, has a section focused on the system resource usage and the info there will tell you if your Internet sites function properly and if the load they generate corresponds to the total amount of received website visitors. The CPU load stats include the script execution time and the length of time it took for the machine to process the requests, and what sorts of processes produced the load. The MySQL stats shall show you how often every single database was accessed, plus day-to-day and per hour stats for the whole account. With both kinds of statistics, you are able to check the numbers for every one of the past days and months, so you could see how sites perform as the traffic to them grows or once you've applied some update.
