The CPU load is dependent upon the length of time a hosting server spends executing a script whenever a visitor opens a webpage on a particular script-driven website. Static HTML Internet sites use hardly any CPU time, but this isn't the case with the far more sophisticated and functional scripts, which use a database and display dynamic content. The more customers open this sort of a site, the more load shall be generated on the web server and if the database is very large, the MySQL server shall be loaded too. An example of what could cause high load is an Internet store with a large number of products. If it is popular, a lot of people will be exploring it at the same time and if they search for items, the whole database containing all the products shall also be continuously accessed by the script, resulting in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load statistics can provide an idea of how the website is doing, if it has to be optimized or if you simply need a more powerful website hosting solution - if the Internet site is extremely popular and the current setup cannot cope with the load.
MySQL & Load Stats in Cloud Hosting
Our system keeps detailed info about the system resource usage of every single cloud hosting account that is created on our top-notch cloud platform, so in case you decide to host your sites with us, you'll 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 what amount of system memory they used. You may see what processes generated the load - PHP or Perl scripts, cron jobs, etc. The MySQL load stats section will show you the amount of queries to each individual database you have created within your shared hosting account, the total queries for the account as a whole and the average hourly rate. Comparing these figures to the visitor data shall tell you if your sites perform the way they need to or if they require some optimization, which will improve their efficiency and the overall visitor experience.
