If you have an HTML site, in all probability it uses a really small amount of system resources simply because it is static, but that isn't the case with dynamic database-driven websites that use PHP scripts and offer considerably more features. This sort of sites generate load on the web hosting server each and every time someone browses them, simply because the server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to supply the content requested by the visitor's Internet browser. A widely used discussion board, for instance, stores all usernames and posts in a database, so some load is generated any time a thread is opened or a user looks for a particular name. If a lot of people access the forum all at once, or if every search involves checking thousands of database entries, this may generate high load and affect the performance of the Internet site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load data can provide information about the site’s overall performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic stats to make a decision if the website needs to be optimized or migrated to a different type of web hosting platform that will be able to bear the high system load if the website is really popular.

One of the sections shall give you details about the CPU load, including the amount of processing time the web server spent, the length of time it took for your scripts to be executed and exactly how much memory they used. Stats are routinely created every 6 hours and you can also see the types of processes that generated the most load - PHP, Perl, and so on. MySQL load data are listed in a separate section in which you can see all the queries on a per hour, daily, etc. basis. You can go back and compare stats from various months to see if some update has changed the resource usage if the amount of visitors has not changed much. That way, you can determine if your site needs to be optimized, that will lead to a better functionality and an improved user experience.

MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you would like to see thorough statistics about the load produced by your websites, it will not take more than a few mouse clicks to do that. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all semi-dedicated servers which we offer, features a section focused on the system resource usage and the data there shall tell you if your websites perform well and if the load they generate corresponds to the number of received website visitors. The CPU load stats include the script execution time and the amount of time it took for the machine to process the requests, as well as what types of processes created the load. The MySQL stats will show you how frequently each individual database was accessed, as well as daily and by the hour data for the whole account. With both kinds of statistics, you are able to check the numbers for every one of the past days and months, so you can see how the websites perform as the traffic to them increases or after you have applied some update.
