The CPU load is dependent upon the length of time a web server spends executing a script whenever a visitor opens a webpage on a certain script-driven site. Static HTML sites use hardly any CPU time, but this isn't the case with the much more complex and functional scripts, that use a database and display dynamic content. The more people open such a site, the more load shall be produced on the hosting server and if the database is big, the MySQL server will be loaded too. A good example of what may cause high load is an online store with a large number of products. If it's popular, a lot of people will be browsing it at the same time and if they search for items, the entire database that contains all of the products shall also be constantly accessed by the script, which will result in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load statistics will provide you with an idea of how the site is doing, if it needs to be optimized or if you simply just need a more powerful website hosting solution - if the website is popular and the established setup can't cope with the load.
MySQL & Load Stats in Cloud Web Hosting
Our system keeps comprehensive info about the system resource usage of each cloud web hosting account that is created on our top-notch cloud platform, so in case you decide to host your Internet sites with us, you shall have full access to this data from the Hepsia Control Panel, which you will get with the account. The CPU load stats feature the CPU time and the actual execution time of your scripts, along with what amount of system memory they used. You can also see what processes produced the load - PHP or Perl scripts, cron jobs, and so on. The MySQL load data section will show you the total amount queries to each specific database you have created within your shared hosting account, the total queries for the account overall and the standard hourly rate. Comparing these numbers to the visitor stats will tell you if your sites perform the way they need to or if they require some optimization, that will improve their overall performance and the overall visitor experience.
