The CPU load depends upon the time a hosting server spends executing a script any time a visitor opens a webpage on a specific script-driven site. Static HTML sites use barely any CPU time, but it's not the situation with the much more sophisticated and functional scripts, that use a database and display dynamic content. The more people open this sort of a website, the more load will be generated on the server and if the database is very large, the MySQL server shall be loaded as well. An example of what could cause high load is an online store with a huge number of products. If it's popular, lots of people shall be visiting it at the same time and if they look for items, the whole database that contains all of the products will also be continuously accessed by the script, which will result in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load statistics can provide an idea of how the site is doing, if it has to be optimized or if you simply just need a more powerful hosting solution - if the website is popular and the existing setup cannot cope with the load.

MySQL & Load Stats in Web Hosting

Our system keeps comprehensive info about the system resource usage of every single web hosting account which is set up on our top-notch cloud platform, so in case you opt to host your Internet sites with our company, you shall have full access to this info from the Hepsia Control Panel, which you'll get with the account. The CPU load statistics include the CPU time and the actual execution time of your scripts, and the amount of system memory they used. You could also see what processes created the load - PHP or Perl scripts, cron jobs, and so forth. The MySQL load statistics section will show you the number of queries to each individual database that you have created inside your shared hosting account, the total queries for the account altogether and the average hourly rate. Comparing these figures to the website visitor stats shall tell you if your Internet sites perform the way they need to or if they need some optimization, which will improve their performance and the overall website visitor experience.

MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you would like to see thorough statistics for the load created by your Internet sites, it will not take more than just a few mouse clicks to do this. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided with all semi-dedicated servers which we offer, has a section devoted to the system resource usage and the data there can tell you if your sites function properly and if the load they produce corresponds to the amount of received visitors. The CPU load stats include the script execution time and the length of time it took for the machine to process the requests, as well as what kinds of processes created the load. The MySQL stats shall show you how frequently every database was accessed, plus daily and by the hour statistics for the whole account. With both sorts of statistics, you'll be able to check the numbers for every one of the past days and months, so you could see how the sites perform as the traffic to them rises or once you've applied some update.
