When a visitor opens your site, the Internet browser sends a request to the hosting server, which in turn executes it and gives the necessary content as a response. A simple HTML site uses very little system resources as it's static, but database-driven platforms are more demanding and use much more processing time. Every single page that's served produces 2 kinds of load - CPU load, that depends on the span of time the server spends executing a specific script; and MySQL load, that depends on the number of database queries created by the script while the end user browses the Internet site. Bigger load will be generated if a considerable amount of people browse a certain site all at once or if many database calls are made simultaneously. Two illustrations are a discussion board with tens of thousands of users or an online store where a customer enters a term in a search box and tens of thousands of items are searched. Having thorough statistics about the load that your site generates will enable you to optimize the content or see if it's the perfect time to switch to a more powerful sort of hosting service, if the Internet site is simply getting really popular.

MySQL & Load Stats in Shared Web Hosting

Our system keeps detailed info about the system resource usage of each shared web hosting account that's created on our top-notch cloud platform, so if you opt to host your websites with us, you shall have full access to this data via the Hepsia Control Panel, which you shall get with the account. The CPU load statistics include the CPU time and the actual execution time of your scripts, as well as the amount of system memory they used. You can also see what processes created the load - PHP or Perl scripts, cron jobs, etcetera. The MySQL load stats section will show you the number of queries to each specific database that you have created inside your shared hosting account, the total queries for the account as a whole and the normal hourly rate. Comparing these figures to the visitor data will tell you if your websites perform the way they need to or if they need some optimization, which will improve their efficiency and the overall visitor experience.

MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you want to see detailed stats for the load created by your Internet sites, it won't take more than a couple of mouse clicks to do this. The Hepsia hosting CP, provided with all semi-dedicated servers which we offer, features a section dedicated to the system resource usage and the info there can tell you if your sites operate properly and if the load they create corresponds to the amount of received website visitors. The CPU load data include the script execution time and the amount of time it took for the hosting server to process the requests, and also what kinds of processes created the load. The MySQL statistics will show you how many times each individual database was accessed, as well as everyday and by the hour data for the whole account. With both forms of stats, you can check the numbers for each of the past days and months, so you could see how sites perform as the traffic to them rises or after you have applied some update.
