If you have an HTML Internet site, it likely uses a small amount of resources due to the fact that it is static, but this isn't the case with dynamic database-driven sites that use PHP scripts and offer you considerably more capabilities. This kind of Internet sites produce load on the web hosting server when anyone browses them, because the hosting server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to provide the content requested by the visitor's web browser. A well known discussion board, as an illustration, stores all usernames and posts within a database, so some load is generated every time a thread is opened or an end user searches for a specific name. If a lot of people access the forum concurrently, or if every single search involves checking tens of thousands of database entries, this could produce high load and affect the performance of the website. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load stats can present you with data about the site’s efficiency, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic data to determine if the site has to be optimized or moved to another sort of web hosting platform that will be able to bear the high system load in case the Internet site is popular.
MySQL & Load Stats in Cloud Website Hosting
Using the Hepsia CP, included with all our cloud website hosting plans, you will be able to see very comprehensive stats about the system resources that your Internet sites use. One of the sections will give you details about the CPU load, like how much processing time the web server spent, the amount of time it took for your scripts to be executed and the amount of memory they used. Stats are consistently produced every 6 hours and you could also see the kinds of processes that generated the most load - PHP, Perl, and so on. MySQL load stats are listed in a separate section where you can see all the queries on a per hour, daily, and so forth. basis. You can go back and compare stats from different months to see if some update has altered the resource usage if the number of website visitors has not changed much. In this way, you can see if your site needs to be optimized, which will contribute to a better functionality and an improved user experience.
MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our system produces comprehensive stats about the two different types of load, so if you purchase a semi-dedicated server for your websites, you can access the information with just a few mouse clicks within your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Every type of info is listed within its own section. The CPU Load section can tell you which processes produced the load and the time it took for the hosting server to execute all of the requests. Although statistics are generated every six hours, you can see day-to-day and monthly statistics as well. In the MySQL Load section you'll find a list of all the databases produced inside your semi-dedicated account manually and automatically, what number of queries were sent to every one of them, the total daily queries for the account as a whole, plus the average hourly rate. This data will help you see how well your Internet sites perform and if any of them needs optimization of some kind.
