If you have an HTML Internet site, it likely uses a small amount of resources due to the fact that it's static, but this isn't so with dynamic database-driven websites that use PHP scripts and provide you with far more capabilities. This sort of sites produce load on the web hosting server each time anyone browses them, because the web server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to deliver the information requested by the visitor's web browser. A famous discussion board, for example, stores all usernames and posts inside a database, so some load is produced every single time a thread is opened or a user looks for a given term. If a lot of people connect to the forum simultaneously, or if each search involves checking tens of thousands of database entries, this can create high load and affect the efficiency of the Internet site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load stats can provide data about the site’s overall performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic statistics to decide if the site has to be optimized or transferred to another sort of website hosting platform that will be able to bear the high system load if the site is really popular.

MySQL & Load Stats in Cloud Web Hosting

Using the Hepsia CP, bundled with all of our cloud web hosting offers, you shall be able to to see very detailed stats regarding the resources your Internet sites use. One of the sections will give you info on the CPU load, like how much processing time the server spent, the time it took for your scripts to be executed and exactly how much memory they used. Statistics are routinely created every 6 hours and you can also see the kinds of processes that generated the most load - PHP, Perl, etc. MySQL load stats are listed within a separate section in which you can see all the queries on an hourly, everyday, etc. basis. You could go back and compare statistics from different months to see if some update has changed the resource usage if the total amount of site visitors has not changed much. This way, you will see if your site needs to be optimized, that'll lead to a better general performance and an improved user experience.
