The CPU load depends on the length of time a server spends executing a script each time a visitor opens a page on a particular script-driven Internet site. Static HTML sites use barely any CPU time, but this is not so with the significantly more advanced and functional scripts, which use a database and display dynamic content. The more people open this type of an Internet site, the more load will be created on the web server and if the database is large, the MySQL server will be loaded also. An illustration of what may cause high load is a web-based store with a large number of products. If it's popular, many people shall be exploring it all at once and if they search for items, the entire database containing all the products shall also be frequently accessed by the script, resulting in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load stats will give you an idea of how the website is doing, if it needs to be optimized or if you simply need a more effective web hosting solution - if the Internet site is popular and the established setup cannot handle the load.
MySQL & Load Stats in Shared Website Hosting
Using the Hepsia CP, bundled with all our shared website hosting packages, you will be able to see really detailed statistics concerning the system resources that your websites use. One of the sections shall give you information about the CPU load, like how much processing time the server spent, the span of time it took for your scripts to be executed and exactly how much memory they used. Stats are consistently produced every 6 hours and you can also see the types of processes that generated the most load - PHP, Perl, and so on. MySQL load stats are listed inside an individual section in which you are able to see all the queries on a per hour, day-to-day, and so on. basis. You'll be able to go back and compare data from different months to find out if some update has altered the resource usage if the total amount of website visitors hasn't changed much. That way, you can see if your website needs to be optimized, which will lead to a better performance and an improved user experience.
