When a visitor opens your website, the web browser sends a request to the server, which executes it and provides the desired information as a response. A simple HTML Internet site uses very little system resources as it's static, but database-driven platforms are more requiring and use a lot more processing time. Every page which is served produces two forms of load - CPU load, that depends on the time period the web server spends executing a specific script; and MySQL load, which depends on the total number of database queries produced by the script while the client browses the website. Bigger load will be generated if loads of people look through a given website at the same time or if numerous database calls are made all at once. Two examples are a discussion board with tens of thousands of users or an online store where a customer enters a term in a search box and tens of thousands of items are searched. Having in depth stats about the load your website generates will help you boost the content or see if it is time to switch to a more powerful kind of website hosting service, if the site is simply getting extremely popular.

MySQL & Load Stats in Hosting

If you host your Internet sites within a hosting account with us, you shall have access to detailed CPU and MySQL statistics which will allow you to keep track of their operation. You can see the stats with a few clicks inside your Hepsia CP. The CPU Load section will reveal to you the total time period the server spent on your scripts and the amount of memory was required, and the time it took for the scripts to be executed. The day-to-day view is the default one, but you can also see the stats from the previous months. The MySQL Load section will provide you with more info about the number of queries to each database that you have created in the account. Once again, you can see monthly, everyday and hourly data, that will give you information that is different from the traffic or the number of visitors that you get. In this way, you can identify if the sites require some optimization.

MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Servers

Because our system keeps in depth statistics for the load which each semi-dedicated server account generates, you'll be aware of how your Internet sites perform at any time. When you log in to the Hepsia CP, included with every account, you can go to the section dedicated to the system load. In it, you are able to see the processing time our system spent on your scripts, the span of time it took for the scripts to be actually executed and what types of processes created the load - cron jobs, PHP pages, Perl scripts, and so forth. Also you can see the total number of queries to each and every database in your semi-dedicated account, the total day-to-day statistics for the account as a whole, plus the average hourly rate. With both the CPU and the MySQL load statistics, you may always go back to past days or months and evaluate the efficiency of your sites after some update or after a sizeable rise in the number of your visitors.
