If you have an HTML site, most likely it uses a really small amount of system resources because it is static, but this isn't so with dynamic database-driven sites that use PHP scripts and provide a lot more features. This type of sites create load on the website hosting server each and every time somebody browses them, simply because the server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to supply the info requested by the visitor's Internet browser. A famous discussion board, as an illustration, stores all usernames and posts in a database, so some load is produced every time a thread is opened or an end user searches for a particular word. If many people connect to the forum all at once, or if every search involves checking tens of thousands of database entries, this may generate high load and affect the functionality of the website. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load stats can present you with data about the site’s performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic stats to decide if the Internet site should be optimized or migrated to another kind of hosting platform that will be able to bear the high system load if the website is very popular.
MySQL & Load Stats in Cloud Hosting
If you host your websites in a cloud hosting
account with our company, you will have access to comprehensive CPU and MySQL statistics which will allow you to keep an eye on their functionality. You can see the data with a few clicks in your Hepsia Control Panel. The CPU Load section can tell you the total time the server spent on your scripts and what amount of memory was needed, plus the time it took for the scripts to be executed. The daily view is the standard one, but you'll be able to also see the numbers from the past months. The MySQL Load section give you more details about the number of queries to every database that you have set up inside the account. Once again, you are able to see monthly, everyday and per hour data, that will give you info that is different from the traffic or the number of visitors that you get. That way, you can determine if the websites require some optimization.
MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Servers
As our system keeps in depth statistics for the load that each semi-dedicated server
account produces, you will be aware of how your Internet sites perform at any time. Once you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with every account, you should check out the section committed to the system load. In it, you can see the processing time our system spent on your scripts, how much time it took for the scripts to be actually executed and what sorts of processes produced the load - cron jobs, PHP pages, Perl scripts, etcetera. You may also see the amount of queries to each database inside your semi-dedicated account, the total day-to-day stats for the account as a whole, plus the average hourly rate. With both the CPU and the MySQL load stats, you could always go back to past days or months and assess the functionality of your Internet sites after some update or after a sizeable increase in the number of your visitors.
