When a visitor opens your Internet site, the web browser sends a request to the server, which executes it and provides the required data as a response. A simple HTML Internet site uses minimal resources as it's static, but database-driven platforms are more requiring and use far more processing time. Each and every page that's served creates 2 sorts of load - CPU load, which depends on the time the server spends executing a certain script; and MySQL load, which depends on the total number of database queries created by the script while the user browses the Internet site. Bigger load will be generated if loads of people browse a certain website concurrently or if loads of database calls are made at the same time. Two good examples are a discussion board with many users or an online store where a customer enters a term within a search box and a large number of items are searched. Having thorough stats about the load which your site generates will allow you to improve the content or see if it is time to switch to a more powerful kind of website hosting service, if the website is simply getting really popular.

MySQL & Load Stats in Web Hosting

Our system keeps detailed information about the system resource usage of every web hosting account which is created on our top-notch cloud platform, so in case you choose to host your websites with us, you will have full access to this data via the Hepsia CP, which you shall get with the account. The CPU load data include the CPU time and the actual execution time of your scripts, as well as what amount of system memory they used. You could also see what processes generated the load - PHP or Perl scripts, cron jobs, etcetera. The MySQL load data section will show you the amount of queries to each individual database that you've created in your shared hosting account, the total queries for the account as a whole and the average hourly rate. Comparing these statistics to the website visitor statistics shall tell you if your websites perform the way they have to or if they require some optimization, that will improve their efficiency and the overall visitor experience.
