Each time a visitor opens your website, the Internet browser sends a request to the web server, which executes it and provides the desired content as a response. A simple HTML Internet site uses minimum resources for the reason that it's static, but database-driven platforms are more requiring and use a lot more processing time. Every page that's served produces two forms of load - CPU load, that depends on the time the hosting server spends executing a particular script; and MySQL load, which depends on the total number of database queries created by the script while the user browses the site. Larger load will be produced if a whole lot of people look through a given site simultaneously or if many database calls are made all at once. Two illustrations are a discussion board with tens of thousands of users or an online store where a client enters a term within a search box and tens of thousands of items are searched. Having in depth stats about the load that your site generates will help you improve the content or see if it is time for you to switch to a more powerful kind of web hosting service, if the site is simply getting really popular.

MySQL & Load Stats in Web Hosting

Our system keeps comprehensive information about the system resource usage of every web hosting account which is set up on our top-notch cloud platform, so if you choose to host your websites with us, you'll have full access to this information from the Hepsia Control Panel, which you shall get with the account. The CPU load stats feature the CPU time and the actual execution time of your scripts, along with what amount of system memory they used. You can also see what processes produced the load - PHP or Perl scripts, cron jobs, etcetera. The MySQL load statistics section will show you the number of queries to each specific database that you've created within your shared hosting account, the total queries for the account in general and the normal hourly rate. Comparing these statistics to the visitor stats shall tell you if your sites perform the way they have to or if they require some optimization, that will improve their efficiency and the overall site visitor experience.

MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you need to see in depth stats for the load generated by your sites, it will not take more than several mouse clicks to do this. The Hepsia hosting CP, provided with all semi-dedicated servers we offer, features a section focused on the system resource usage and the info there can tell you if your Internet sites function properly and if the load they create corresponds to the total amount of received site visitors. The CPU load stats include the script execution time and how much time it took for the hosting server to process the requests, and what sorts of processes generated the load. The MySQL stats shall show you how many times every database was accessed, and also everyday and per hour data for the entire account. With both forms of statistics, you'll be able to check the numbers for every one of the past days and months, so you can easily see how the sites perform as the traffic to them increases or once you've applied some update.
