Whenever a visitor opens your website, the Internet browser sends a request to the server, which in turn executes it and provides the necessary content as a response. A standard HTML site uses very little system resources because it is static, but database-driven platforms are more demanding and use a lot more processing time. Each and every page that's served produces 2 types of load - CPU load, that depends on the span of time the hosting server spends executing a specific script; and MySQL load, which depends on the amount of database queries created by the script while the end user browses the site. Bigger load will be created if loads of people surf a particular website at the same time or if many database calls are made concurrently. Two examples are a discussion board with a large number of users or an online store in which a client enters a term within a search box and tens of thousands of items are searched. Having comprehensive stats about the load your Internet site generates will help you optimize the content or see if it's the perfect time to switch to a more powerful type of website hosting service, if the Internet site is simply getting very popular.

Using the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all our cloud web hosting offers, you shall be able to to see incredibly detailed data about the resources that your sites use. One of the sections shall give you details about the CPU load, such as the amount of processing time the server spent, the amount of time it took for your scripts to be executed and what amount of memory they used. Stats are routinely produced every 6 hours and you may also see the different kinds of processes that produced the most load - PHP, Perl, etc. MySQL load statistics are listed in a separate section where you could see all the queries on an hourly, day-to-day, etc. basis. You could go back and compare statistics from different months to find out whether some update has altered the resource usage if the amount of website visitors hasn't changed much. That way, you can see if your Internet site needs to be optimized, that'll lead to a better general performance and an improved user experience.

MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you need to see in depth stats about the load generated by your sites, it will not take more than just a few clicks to do that. The Hepsia hosting CP, supplied with all semi-dedicated servers that we offer, features a section committed to the system resource usage and the information there shall tell you if your websites operate properly and if the load they generate corresponds to the total amount of received website visitors. The CPU load data include the script execution time and the length of time it took for the web server to process the requests, plus what types of processes generated the load. The MySQL data will show you how frequently each database was accessed, and also day-to-day and hourly stats for the whole account. With both sorts of statistics, you can check the numbers for each of the past days and months, so you can easily see how the sites perform as the traffic to them increases or after you have applied some update.
