If you have an HTML site, most likely it uses a really small amount of system resources because it is static, but this isn't so with dynamic database-driven sites that use PHP scripts and offer you far more features. This sort of Internet sites create load on the web hosting server every time someone browses them, simply because the server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to supply the content requested by the visitor's web browser. A famous discussion board, as an illustration, stores all usernames and posts in a database, so some load is generated every single time a thread is opened or a user looks for a specific term. If many people access the forum at the same time, or if every single search involves checking hundreds of thousands of database entries, this could create high load and affect the overall performance of the website. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load data can provide you with info about the site’s overall performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic data and see if the website has to be optimized or migrated to a new type of web hosting platform that will be able to bear the high system load if the Internet site is really popular.
MySQL & Load Stats in Cloud Hosting
Using the Hepsia CP, which comes with all our cloud hosting offers, you will be able to see rather comprehensive stats regarding the resources that your websites use. One of the sections will give you information regarding the CPU load, like the amount of processing time the server spent, the time it took for your scripts to be executed and exactly how much memory they used. Stats are automatically produced every six hours and you can also see the types of processes that generated the most load - PHP, Perl, and so on. MySQL load statistics are listed inside a different section in which you can see all the queries on an hourly, day-to-day, etcetera. basis. You'll be able to go back and compare data from various months to determine if some update has changed the resource usage if the amount of website visitors has not changed much. That way, you will see if your website needs to be optimized, which will give you a better functionality and an improved user experience.
