The CPU load is dependent upon the length of time a hosting server spends executing a script any time a visitor opens a page on a given script-driven Internet site. Static HTML Internet sites use hardly any CPU time, but this isn't the case with the far more complex and functional scripts, that use a database and display dynamic content. The more individuals open this kind of an Internet site, the more load will be produced on the server and if the database is very large, the MySQL server shall be loaded as well. A good example of what can cause high load is an online store with tens of thousands of products. If it is popular, plenty of people shall be browsing it at the same time and if they look for items, the entire database which contains all of the products shall also be constantly accessed by the script, resulting in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load stats will provide you with an idea of how the website is doing, if it needs to be optimized or if you simply just need a more potent web hosting solution - if the website is extremely popular and the established setup cannot cope with the load.
MySQL & Load Stats in Web Hosting
Our system keeps detailed info about the system resource usage of each web hosting account which is set up on our top-notch cloud platform, so in case you choose to host your websites with us, you will have full access to this data from the Hepsia Control Panel, which you shall get with the account. The CPU load statistics include the CPU time and the actual execution time of your scripts, plus how much system memory they used. You can also see what processes generated 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've created inside your shared hosting account, the total queries for the account in general and the average hourly rate. Comparing these figures to the visitor statistics shall tell you if your websites perform the way they have to or if they need some optimization, which will improve their overall performance and the overall website visitor experience.
