When a visitor opens your website, the web browser sends a request to the web server, which in turn executes it and supplies the desired content as a response. A simple HTML Internet site uses minimum system resources for the reason that it is static, but database-driven platforms are more demanding and use a lot more processing time. Each webpage that's served produces 2 sorts of load - CPU load, which depends on the time period the web server spends executing a certain script; and MySQL load, which depends on the amount of database queries created by the script while the client browses the site. Greater load shall be created if loads of people surf a particular site simultaneously or if loads of database calls are made simultaneously. Two good examples are a discussion board with tens of thousands of users or an online store where a visitor enters a term in a search box and a large number of items are searched. Having in depth statistics about the load which your Internet site generates can help you improve the content or see if it's the perfect time to switch to a more powerful kind of hosting service, if the website is simply getting really popular.

MySQL & Load Stats in Cloud Hosting

Our system keeps comprehensive info about the system resource usage of every cloud hosting account that is created on our top-notch cloud platform, so if you decide to host your websites with us, you will have full access to this info through the Hepsia Control Panel, which you will get with the account. The CPU load stats 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 generated the load - PHP or Perl scripts, cron jobs, and so on. The MySQL load statistics section will show you the amount of queries to each particular database which you have created within your shared hosting account, the total queries for the account in general and the average hourly rate. Comparing these figures to the site visitor statistics shall tell you if your Internet sites perform the way they need to or if they require some optimization, which will improve their efficiency and the overall visitor experience.

MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you want to see thorough statistics for the load generated by your Internet sites, it won't take more than a couple of clicks to do that. The Hepsia hosting CP, provided with all semi-dedicated servers we offer, features a section committed to the system resource usage and the information there shall tell you if your sites perform well and if the load they create corresponds to the number of received website visitors. The CPU load data include the script execution time and how much time it took for the hosting server to process the requests, as well as what kinds of processes produced the load. The MySQL stats shall show you the number of times each individual database was accessed, as well as everyday and by the hour statistics for the entire account. With both types of stats, you'll be able to check the numbers for each of the past days and months, so you can easily see how sites perform as the traffic to them increases or once you've applied some update.
