If you have an HTML site, it probably uses a small amount of resources simply because it's static, but this isn't so with dynamic database-driven Internet sites that use PHP scripts and offer far more features. Such Internet sites generate load on the website hosting server every time anyone browses them, as the server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to supply the information requested by the visitor's Internet browser. A popular discussion board, for instance, stores all usernames and posts within a database, so some load is produced any time a thread is opened or a user searches for a certain term. If many people connect to the forum at the same time, or if every search involves checking tens of thousands of database entries, this can generate high load and affect the performance of the Internet site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load stats can give you information about the site’s functionality, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic data to make a decision if the site must be optimized or moved to another kind of hosting platform that will be able to bear the high system load if the Internet site is extremely popular.

MySQL & Load Stats in Hosting

Using the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all of our hosting packages, you shall be able to to see incredibly detailed data about the system resources which your sites use. One of the sections will give you details about the CPU load, such as how much processing time the server spent, the amount of time it took for your scripts to be executed and how much memory they used. Statistics are automatically produced every six hours and you may also see the different kinds of processes that generated the most load - PHP, Perl, etc. MySQL load data are listed in an individual section in which you are able to see all the queries on a per hour, daily, and so forth. basis. You can go back and compare stats from different months to find out whether some update has transformed the resource usage if the total amount of visitors has not changed much. That way, you can determine if your site needs to be optimized, which will lead to a better functionality and an improved user experience.
