Whenever a visitor opens your website, the browser sends a request to the server, which executes it and provides the desired information as a response. A simple HTML site uses minimum system resources due to the fact that it's static, but database-driven platforms are more requiring and use much more processing time. Each page that is served produces 2 types of load - CPU load, which depends on the time the hosting server spends executing a certain script; and MySQL load, that depends on the amount of database queries produced by the script while the client browses the Internet site. Larger load shall be generated if many people look through a certain Internet site at the same time or if a considerable amount of database calls are made at the same time. 2 good examples are a discussion board with a huge number of users or an online store where a visitor enters a term within a search box and tens of thousands of items are searched. Having detailed stats about the load your website generates will help you improve the content or see if it is time to switch to a more powerful type of hosting service, if the website is simply getting very popular.

MySQL & Load Stats in Cloud Website Hosting

Using the Hepsia CP, bundled with all our cloud website hosting offers, you will be able to see rather comprehensive stats concerning the system resources your Internet sites use. One of the sections will give you information about the CPU load, such as the amount of processing time the hosting server spent, how much time it took for your scripts to be executed and how much memory they used. Statistics are consistently created every 6 hours and you could also see the kinds of processes that produced the most load - PHP, Perl, and so forth. MySQL load data are listed within a different section where you'll be able to see all the queries on an hourly, daily, and so forth. basis. You'll be able to go back and compare data from different months to see if some update has transformed the resource usage if the number of site visitors has not changed much. Thus, you can see if your Internet site needs to be optimized, which will give you a better general performance and an improved user experience.

MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you need to see comprehensive statistics regarding the load generated by your sites, it won't take more than several mouse clicks to do this. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all semi-dedicated servers we offer, features a section dedicated to the system resource usage and the information there will tell you if your sites perform well and if the load they create 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, plus what kinds of processes produced the load. The MySQL data will show you how frequently every single database was accessed, plus daily and per hour data for the whole account. With both sorts of stats, you'll be able to check the numbers for every one of the past days and months, so you can easily see how the websites perform as the traffic to them increases or once you've applied some update.
