The CPU load depends on the time a server spends executing a script whenever a visitor opens a page on a given script-driven Internet site. Static HTML websites use hardly any CPU time, but it is not the case with the significantly more advanced and functional scripts, that use a database and display dynamic content. The more people open this sort of an Internet site, the more load will be produced on the hosting server and if the database is big, the MySQL server will be loaded also. A good example of what may cause high load is a web-based store with a large number of products. If it's popular, a lot of people shall be exploring it simultaneously and if they look for items, the whole database that contains 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 site is doing, if it has to be optimized or if you simply just need a more efficient web hosting solution - if the site is really popular and the established setup cannot handle the load.
MySQL & Load Stats in Shared Website Hosting
Using the Hepsia CP, provided with all our shared website hosting packages, you shall be able to to see really comprehensive stats regarding the system resources which your Internet sites use. One of the sections will give you details about the CPU load, like how much processing time the web server spent, how much time it took for your scripts to be executed and what amount of memory they used. Statistics are consistently produced every six hours and you may also see the types of processes that generated the most load - PHP, Perl, etc. MySQL load stats are listed inside a separate section in which you can see all the queries on a per hour, everyday, etc. basis. You can go back and compare statistics from various months to determine if some update has changed the resource usage if the total amount of website visitors has not changed much. That way, you can determine if your Internet site needs to be optimized, which will result in a better functionality and an improved user experience.
