When a visitor opens your site, the browser sends a request to the hosting server, which executes it and gives the required information as a response. A simple HTML website uses very little system resources due to the fact that it is static, but database-driven platforms are more requiring and use far more processing time. Every single webpage that is served generates two types of load - CPU load, that depends on the time period the hosting server spends executing a particular script; and MySQL load, which depends on the number of database queries produced by the script while the customer browses the website. Greater load shall be created if loads of people browse a given site at the same time or if loads of database calls are made at the same time. Two illustrations are a discussion board with a huge number of users or an online store where a visitor enters a term inside a search box and thousands of items are searched. Having in depth statistics about the load which your site generates can help you optimize the content or see if it's the perfect time to switch to a more powerful kind of web hosting service, if the Internet site is simply getting very popular.

MySQL & Load Stats in Shared Website Hosting

Using the Hepsia CP, bundled with all of our shared website hosting packages, you shall be able to to see incredibly detailed data concerning the resources which your websites use. One of the sections will give you info on the CPU load, including the amount of processing time the hosting server spent, the length of time it took for your scripts to be executed and the amount of memory they used. Statistics are automatically generated 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 separate section in which you can see all the queries on an hourly, everyday, and so forth. basis. You could go back and compare statistics from different months to determine if some update has altered the resource usage if the number of website visitors has not changed much. Thus, you can see if your site needs to be optimized, which will result in a better general performance and an improved user experience.

MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you want to see comprehensive statistics with regards to the load generated by your sites, it will not take more than a few clicks to do that. The Hepsia hosting CP, included with all semi-dedicated servers we offer, has a section devoted to the system resource usage and the information there will tell you if your sites function properly and if the load they create corresponds to the number of received website visitors. The CPU load data include the script execution time and the amount of time it took for the machine to process the requests, as well as what types of processes produced the load. The MySQL statistics will show you how frequently every single database was accessed, plus day-to-day and hourly stats for the entire account. With both kinds of stats, you can check the numbers for any of the past days and months, so you can see how the sites perform as the traffic to them rises or after you have applied some update.
