Every time a visitor opens your Internet site, the web browser sends a request to the hosting server, which in turn executes it and gives the desired data as a response. A basic HTML site uses very little resources for the reason that it is static, but database-driven platforms are more requiring and use far more processing time. Every webpage that is served generates 2 sorts of load - CPU load, that depends on the time period the server spends executing a particular script; and MySQL load, which depends on the number of database queries created by the script while the client browses the website. Larger load shall be generated if many people surf a given site simultaneously or if loads of database calls are made all at once. 2 examples are a discussion board with thousands of users or an online store where a customer enters a term within a search box and a large number of items are searched. Having comprehensive statistics about the load your site generates can help you optimize the content or see if it is time for you to switch to a more powerful sort of web hosting service, if the Internet site is simply getting quite popular.

MySQL & Load Stats in Shared Web Hosting

Using the Hepsia CP, bundled with all our shared web hosting packages, you'll be able to see very detailed data regarding the resources your websites use. One of the sections will give you information regarding the CPU load, including the amount of processing time the web server spent, how much time it took for your scripts to be executed and the amount of memory they used. Stats are routinely produced every six hours and you can also see the different types of processes that generated the most load - PHP, Perl, and so on. MySQL load stats are listed inside a different section in which you can see all the queries on an hourly, daily, etc. 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 number of site visitors hasn't changed much. Thus, you can determine if your Internet site needs to be optimized, that will lead to a better functionality and an improved user experience.

MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you would like to see detailed statistics regarding the load created by your websites, it will not take more than just a few mouse clicks to do this. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all semi-dedicated servers that we offer, has a section devoted to the system resource usage and the data there shall tell you if your websites function properly and if the load they create corresponds to the amount of received site visitors. The CPU load statistics include the script execution time and the time it took for the server to process the requests, and also what types of processes generated the load. The MySQL data will show you how often each database was accessed, plus everyday and per hour stats for the whole account. With both forms of stats, you'll be able to check the numbers for each of the past days and months, so you could see how the sites perform as the traffic to them increases or after you have applied some update.
