If you have an HTML Internet site, it probably uses a really small amount of resources as it is static, but this is not so with dynamic database-driven websites that use PHP scripts and provide you with a lot more functions. This sort of sites produce load on the website hosting server anytime someone browses them, due to the fact that the web server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to provide the content requested by the visitor's Internet browser. A well known discussion board, for instance, stores all usernames and posts in a database, so some load is produced each time a thread is opened or a user looks for a certain name. If a lot of people access the forum concurrently, or if every search involves checking tens of thousands of database entries, this could produce high load and affect the efficiency of the site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load stats can present you with data about the site’s performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic stats to make a decision if the website has to be optimized or migrated to a different type of hosting platform which will be able to bear the high system load if the Internet site is very popular.
MySQL & Load Stats in Website Hosting
Using the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all of our website hosting offers, you will be able to see really detailed statistics about the system resources your websites use. One of the sections will give you information about the CPU load, including how much processing time the hosting server spent, the amount of time it took for your scripts to be executed and how much memory they used. Statistics are automatically produced every six hours and you can also see the different types of processes that produced the most load - PHP, Perl, and so on. MySQL load statistics are listed within a different section in which you could see all the queries on an hourly, day-to-day, etc. basis. You can go back and compare stats from different months to find out if some update has transformed the resource usage if the total amount of visitors hasn't changed much. That way, you can see if your Internet site needs to be optimized, which will lead to a better functionality and an improved user experience.
MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you would like to see thorough stats with regards to the load created by your websites, it will not take more than just a few clicks to do that. The Hepsia hosting CP, included with all semi-dedicated servers that we offer, has a section focused on the system resource usage and the information there shall tell you if your websites perform well and if the load they generate corresponds to the total amount of received site visitors. The CPU load statistics include the script execution time and the length of time it took for the hosting server to process the requests, and what kinds of processes generated the load. The MySQL stats will show you the number of times each database was accessed, and daily and hourly statistics for the whole account. With both types of statistics, you can check the numbers for any of the past days and months, so you could see how the websites perform as the traffic to them rises or once you've applied some update.
