The CPU load depends upon the time a web 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 this isn't the situation with the much more complex and functional scripts, which use a database and display dynamic content. The more customers open this kind of a website, the more load shall be produced on the server and if the database is big, the MySQL server will be loaded too. An illustration of what could cause high load is an online store with a large number of products. If it's popular, plenty of people shall be exploring it concurrently and if they search for items, the whole database that contains all of the products shall also be constantly accessed by the script, which will result in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load data will offer you an idea of how the site is doing, if it has to be optimized or if you just need a more potent web hosting solution - if the website is extremely popular and the existing setup cannot cope with the load.
MySQL & Load Stats in Hosting
If you host your websites within a hosting account with our company, you shall have access to detailed CPU and MySQL statistics that will enable you to monitor their operation. You could see the statistics with several clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. The CPU Load section can tell you the total time the web server spent on your scripts and just how much memory was needed, and the time it took for the scripts to be executed. The day-to-day view is the standard one, but you'll be able to also see the numbers from the past months. The MySQL Load section give you more details about the total amount of queries to every single database that you have created inside the account. Once again, you can easily see month-to-month, day-to-day and hourly data, that will give you data which is different from the traffic or the number of visitors you get. In this way, you can see if the sites require some optimization.
MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Servers
Because our system keeps comprehensive statistics for the load which every semi-dedicated server account generates, you shall be aware of how your sites perform at any time. After you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with every account, you can check out the section dedicated to the system load. There, you will see the processing time our system spent on your scripts, the amount of time it took for the scripts to be actually executed and what sorts of processes produced the load - cron jobs, PHP pages, Perl scripts, etc. You may also see the amount of queries to every single database in your semi-dedicated account, the total day-to-day numbers for the account in general, as well as the average hourly rate. With both the CPU and the MySQL load statistics, you may always go back to past days or months and evaluate the overall performance of your websites after some update or after a substantial rise in the number of your website visitors.
