The CPU load depends on the length of time a hosting server spends executing a script every time a visitor opens a webpage on a specific script-driven Internet site. Static HTML websites use hardly any CPU time, but this isn't the situation with the much more complex and functional scripts, which use a database and display dynamic content. The more individuals open this type of a site, the more load will be created on the server and if the database is big, the MySQL server shall be loaded too. A good example of what may cause high load is an Internet store with a large number of products. If it is popular, plenty of people will be visiting it concurrently and if they look for items, the entire database containing all of the products will also be frequently accessed by the script, which will result in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load data will provide you with an idea of how the website is doing, if it has to be optimized or if you just need a more powerful web hosting solution - if the site is really popular and the current setup cannot deal with the load.

MySQL & Load Stats in Hosting

Using the Hepsia CP, bundled with all our hosting plans, you'll be able to see very comprehensive data regarding the system resources your websites use. One of the sections will give you information about the CPU load, such as how much processing time the hosting server spent, the length of time it took for your scripts to be executed and what amount of memory they used. Statistics are consistently created every six hours and you may also see the different kinds of processes that generated the most load - PHP, Perl, etc. MySQL load data are listed in an individual section where you could see all the queries on a per hour, everyday, etc. basis. You could go back and compare data from different months to find out whether some update has transformed the resource usage if the total amount of site visitors hasn't changed much. This way, you can see if your site needs to be optimized, which will result in a better general performance and an improved user experience.
