If you have an HTML Internet site, most likely it uses a really small amount of resources due to the fact that it's static, but this isn't the situation with dynamic database-driven sites that use PHP scripts and provide way more functions. This sort of sites produce load on the web hosting server every time anyone browses them, due to the fact that the server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to deliver the data requested by the visitor's Internet browser. A well-known discussion board, for instance, stores all usernames and posts within a database, so some load is created every single time a thread is opened or a user searches for a certain term. If a lot of people access the forum at the same time, or if every search involves checking tens of thousands of database entries, this may produce high load and affect the efficiency of the website. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load statistics can give you information about the site’s functionality, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic statistics to decide if the website should be optimized or migrated to a different type of hosting platform that'll be able to bear the high system load in case the site is really popular.

One of the sections will give you info on the CPU load, like how much processing time the server spent, the span of time it took for your scripts to be executed and the amount of memory they used. Statistics are consistently provided every six hours and you can also see the different types of processes that generated the most load - PHP, Perl, etc. MySQL load statistics are listed within a separate section where you can see all the queries on a per hour, everyday, etc. basis. You'll be able to go back and compare data from various months to determine if some update has changed the resource usage if the number of website visitors has not changed much.

MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you want to see thorough statistics for the load created by your Internet sites, it will not take more than a few clicks to do this. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, included with all semi-dedicated servers we offer, has a section devoted to the system resource usage and the info there will tell you if your sites perform well and if the load they produce corresponds to the number of received visitors. The CPU load data include the script execution time and how much time it took for the server to process the requests, and also what kinds of processes generated the load. The MySQL statistics will show you how many times every single database was accessed, and day-to-day and hourly stats for the entire account. With both forms of statistics, you are able to check the numbers for any of the past days and months, so you could see how sites perform as the traffic to them rises or after you have applied some update.
