If you have an HTML Internet site, it likely uses a really small amount of system resources because it's static, but this isn't the case with dynamic database-driven Internet sites that use PHP scripts and provide way more capabilities. Such sites generate load on the website hosting server every time someone browses them, due to the fact that the hosting 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 popular discussion board, as an illustration, stores all usernames and posts inside a database, so some load is created any time a thread is opened or a user looks for a particular term. If lots of people access the forum all at once, or if every search involves checking thousands of database entries, this may generate high load and affect the performance of the website. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load statistics can provide data about the site’s functionality, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic data and see if the Internet site should be optimized or transferred to a different sort of hosting platform that'll be able to bear the high system load in case the Internet site is very popular.

One of the sections shall give you details about the CPU load, like the amount of processing time the web server spent, the length of time it took for your scripts to be executed and exactly how much memory they used. Stats are routinely provided every 6 hours and you can also see the types of processes that produced the most load - PHP, Perl, etc. MySQL load stats are listed within a separate section where you are able to see all the queries on an hourly, daily, etcetera. basis. You could go back and compare statistics from different months to find out if some update has transformed the resource usage if the number of website visitors hasn't changed much. In this way, you can see if your site needs to be optimized, that will contribute to a better functionality and an improved user experience.

MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you want to see detailed stats about the load generated by your Internet sites, it will not take more than a couple of clicks to do that. The Hepsia hosting CP, provided with all semi-dedicated servers that we offer, has a section committed to the system resource usage and the information there shall tell you if your sites function properly and if the load they create corresponds to the amount of received website visitors. The CPU load statistics include the script execution time and the length of time it took for the web server to process the requests, plus what types of processes generated the load. The MySQL stats will show you how frequently each database was accessed, and day-to-day and per hour statistics for the whole account. With both sorts of stats, you'll be able to check the numbers for every one of the past days and months, so you can see how the websites perform as the traffic to them rises or once you've applied some update.
