Each time a visitor opens your website, the Internet browser sends a request to the server, which in turn executes it and provides the required information as a response. A standard HTML website uses negligible system resources as it's static, but database-driven platforms are more requiring and use much more processing time. Each and every page which is served creates two forms of load - CPU load, that depends on the time the server spends executing a specific script; and MySQL load, which depends on the total number of database queries produced by the script while the user browses the Internet site. Bigger load will be generated if a lot of people surf a given Internet site concurrently or if a considerable amount of database calls are made all at once. 2 examples are a discussion board with a huge number of users or an online store where a customer enters a term within a search box and thousands of items are searched. Having thorough statistics about the load which your website generates can help you improve the content or see if it's time to switch to a more powerful type of website hosting service, if the website is simply getting really popular.

MySQL & Load Stats in Cloud Hosting

Using the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all of our cloud hosting plans, you will be able to see rather detailed data regarding the resources your Internet sites use. One of the sections will give you info on the CPU load, like how much processing time the hosting server spent, the span of time it took for your scripts to be executed and exactly how much memory they used. Statistics are consistently provided every 6 hours and you may also see the different types of processes that generated the most load - PHP, Perl, and so on. MySQL load data are listed in a different section where you can see all the queries on a per hour, everyday, and so forth. basis. You'll be able to go back and compare data from different months to find out if some update has transformed the resource usage if the total amount of site visitors hasn't changed much. Thus, you can see if your site needs to be optimized, which will lead to a better functionality and an improved user experience.

MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Servers

Because our system keeps comprehensive stats for the load which every semi-dedicated server account generates, you shall be aware of how your sites perform at any time. When you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with every account, you should check out the section dedicated to the system load. In it, you can easily see the processing time our system spent on your scripts, how much time it took for the scripts to be actually executed and what types of processes created the load - cron jobs, PHP pages, Perl scripts, etc. You may also see the number of queries to each and every database within your semi-dedicated account, the total daily stats for the account overall, 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 evaluate the general performance of your sites after some update or after a substantial boost in the number of your website visitors.
