Whenever a visitor opens your website, the Internet browser sends a request to the web server, which in turn executes it and gives the necessary 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 a lot more processing time. Every page that is served creates 2 types of load - CPU load, that depends on the time the server spends executing a specific script; and MySQL load, that depends on the amount of database queries generated by the script while the user browses the Internet site. Greater load shall be generated if loads of people look through a particular site concurrently or if a lot of database calls are made all at once. Two illustrations are a discussion board with a huge number of users or an online store in which a customer enters a term within a search box and tens of thousands of items are searched. Having comprehensive data about the load your Internet site generates will help you optimize the content or see if it's the perfect time to switch to a more powerful type of website hosting service, if the site is simply getting very popular.

MySQL & Load Stats in Cloud Hosting

Using the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all our cloud hosting plans, you'll be able to see really comprehensive data regarding the system resources which your Internet sites use. One of the sections shall give you information regarding the CPU load, including the amount of processing time the hosting server spent, how much 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 can also see the types of processes that generated the most load - PHP, Perl, etc. MySQL load stats are listed within a different section in which you could see all the queries on a per hour, day-to-day, and so forth. basis. You'll be able to go back and compare data from different months to see if some update has changed the resource usage if the amount of website visitors hasn't changed much. That way, you can see if your Internet site needs to be optimized, which will give you a better performance and an improved user experience.

MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you need to see in depth stats regarding the load generated by your sites, it will not take more than a few mouse clicks to do this. The Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all semi-dedicated servers we offer, has a section focused on the system resource usage and the information there will tell you if your sites operate properly and if the load they produce corresponds to the number of received visitors. The CPU load data include the script execution time and the time it took for the machine to process the requests, plus what types of processes created the load. The MySQL statistics will show you how often each database was accessed, and also daily and hourly statistics for the entire account. With both types of statistics, you are able to check the numbers for each of the past days and months, so you can easily see how the websites perform as the traffic to them rises or once you've applied some update.
