If you have an HTML website, it probably uses a very small amount of system resources as it is static, but this is not the case with dynamic database-driven sites that use PHP scripts and provide much more capabilities. This type of sites produce load on the web hosting server each and every time someone browses them, as the web server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to supply the content requested by the visitor's web browser. A well known discussion board, for example, stores all usernames and posts inside a database, so some load is produced every single time a thread is opened or an end user looks for a certain word. If a lot of people connect to the forum at the same time, or if each search involves checking a large number of database entries, this can produce high load and affect the performance of the website. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load stats can provide info about the site’s functionality, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic stats to make a decision if the Internet site needs to be optimized or moved to another type of web hosting platform which will be able to bear the high system load if the website is popular.
MySQL & Load Stats in Cloud Website Hosting
Our system keeps detailed info about the system resource usage of each cloud website hosting account which is set up on our top-notch cloud platform, so given that you choose to host your sites with us, you'll have full access to this information via the Hepsia Control Panel, which you'll get with the account. The CPU load data feature the CPU time and the actual execution time of your scripts, plus what amount of system memory they used. You may also see what processes generated the load - PHP or Perl scripts, cron jobs, and so on. The MySQL load statistics section will show you the total amount queries to each individual database you have created inside your shared hosting account, the total queries for the account in general and the standard hourly rate. Comparing these figures to the site visitor statistics will tell you if your websites perform the way they need to or if they require some optimization, that will improve their efficiency and the overall site visitor experience.
