The CPU load is dependent upon the time period a server spends executing a script any time a visitor opens a webpage on a particular script-driven website. Static HTML Internet sites use hardly any CPU time, but it's not so with the much more advanced and functional scripts, which use a database and display dynamic content. The more clients open this kind of a website, the more load will be created on the web server and if the database is large, the MySQL server will be loaded also. A good example of what could cause high load is an Internet store with thousands of products. If it is popular, many people will be browsing it simultaneously and if they seek out items, the entire database which contains all of the products will also be continuously accessed by the script, resulting in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load statistics will provide you with an idea of how the Internet site is doing, if it needs to be optimized or if you simply need a more powerful web hosting solution - if the site is extremely popular and the current setup cannot cope with the load.

MySQL & Load Stats in Shared Hosting

Using the Hepsia CP, included with all of our shared hosting offers, you will be able to see rather comprehensive stats concerning the system resources your websites use. One of the sections shall give you info on the CPU load, including the amount of processing time the hosting server spent, the length of time it took for your scripts to be executed and how much memory they used. Stats are consistently produced every 6 hours and you can also see the different types of processes that produced the most load - PHP, Perl, and so forth. MySQL load stats are listed inside an individual section where you are able to see all the queries on a per hour, day-to-day, and so forth. basis. You could go back and compare statistics from different months to find out whether some update has altered the resource usage if the amount of site visitors has not changed much. This way, you can see if your Internet site needs to be optimized, that will result in a better performance and an improved user experience.
