The CPU load depends on the time period a server spends executing a script any time a visitor opens a page on a certain script-driven Internet site. Static HTML websites use barely any CPU time, but this is not the case with the far more complex and functional scripts, that use a database and display dynamic content. The more clients open this sort of a website, the more load will be produced on the web server and if the database is large, the MySQL server will be loaded also. An example of what could cause high load is an online store with a huge number of products. If it is popular, lots of people will be exploring it concurrently and if they search for items, the entire database that contains all the products will also be constantly accessed by the script, resulting in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load stats can provide an idea of how the Internet site is doing, if it has to be optimized or if you simply just need a more effective hosting solution - if the site is really popular and the current setup cannot cope with the load.

MySQL & Load Stats in Cloud Website Hosting

Using the Hepsia CP, provided with all of our cloud website hosting packages, you'll be able to see really comprehensive data about the system resources your sites use. One of the sections will give you information about the CPU load, like how much processing time the server spent, how much time it took for your scripts to be executed and what amount of memory they used. Stats are automatically generated every six hours and you could also see the different kinds of processes that produced the most load - PHP, Perl, and so on. MySQL load data are listed inside an individual section where you can see all the queries on a per hour, daily, etcetera. basis. You could go back and compare data from different months to find out if some update has altered the resource usage if the amount of site visitors has not changed much. That way, you can determine if your site needs to be optimized, that will result in a better overall performance and an improved user experience.
