When a visitor opens your Internet site, the browser sends a request to the web server, which executes it and supplies the desired information as a response. A standard HTML website uses minimum system resources due to the fact that it is static, but database-driven platforms are more demanding and use a lot more processing time. Each page which is served produces 2 forms of load - CPU load, that depends on the length of time the hosting server spends executing a particular script; and MySQL load, that depends on the amount of database queries created by the script while the customer browses the site. Larger load shall be created if a lot of people browse a particular site at the same time or if a lot of database calls are made all at once. Two good examples are a discussion board with a large number of users or an online store in which a customer enters a term in a search box and a large number of items are searched. Having in depth statistics about the load your site generates can help you optimize the content or see if it's time to switch to a more powerful type of hosting service, if the site is simply getting very popular.

Our system keeps comprehensive info about the system resource usage of each and every shared web hosting account that's created on our top-notch cloud platform, so if you decide to host your websites with us, you'll have full access to this info from the Hepsia CP, which you will get with the account. The CPU load data feature the CPU time and the actual execution time of your scripts, along with how much system memory they used. You may see what processes produced the load - PHP or Perl scripts, cron jobs, and so forth. The MySQL load stats section will show you the total amount queries to each particular database you have created within 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 stats will tell you if your websites perform the way they have to or if they require some optimization, that will improve their functionality and the overall website visitor experience.

MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you want to see detailed statistics about the load produced by your websites, it will not take more than a couple of mouse clicks to do this. The Hepsia hosting CP, supplied with all semi-dedicated servers that we offer, features a section dedicated to the system resource usage and the information there will tell you if your sites operate properly and if the load they create corresponds to the amount of received website visitors. The CPU load data include the script execution time and the amount of time it took for the machine to process the requests, plus what kinds of processes produced the load. The MySQL stats will show you the number of times each database was accessed, as well as daily and by the hour statistics for the whole account. With both kinds of statistics, you are 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 grows or after you have applied some update.
