If you have an HTML website, in all probability it uses a very small amount of system resources as it is static, but this is not the case with dynamic database-driven Internet sites that use PHP scripts and provide much more functions. This type of websites generate load on the hosting server anytime anyone browses them, simply because the server requires time to execute the script, to access the database and then to supply the data requested by the visitor's web browser. A famous discussion board, for instance, stores all usernames and posts inside a database, so some load is created every single time a thread is opened or a user looks for a specific name. If a lot of people connect to the forum at the same time, or if every single search involves checking a large number of database entries, this can generate high load and affect the functionality of the Internet site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load stats can provide you with data about the site’s performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic statistics to determine if the Internet site should be optimized or transferred to a different type of web hosting platform that'll be able to bear the high system load in the event that the Internet site is very popular.

One of the sections shall give you info on the CPU load, like how much processing time the hosting server spent, the time it took for your scripts to be executed and exactly how much memory they used. Statistics are consistently created every 6 hours and you may also see the different types of processes that produced the most load - PHP, Perl, and so forth. MySQL load stats are listed within a different section where you are able to see all the queries on a per hour, daily, and so on. basis. You could go back and compare stats from various months to see if some update has changed the resource usage if the total amount of site visitors has not changed much.

The Hepsia hosting CP, included with all semi-dedicated servers which we offer, features a section dedicated to the system resource usage and the information there can tell you if your websites function properly and if the load they create corresponds to the amount of received visitors. The CPU load data include the script execution time and the time it took for the machine to process the requests, as well as what sorts of processes produced the load. The MySQL data will show you how often every single database was accessed, and day-to-day and by the hour data for the entire account. With both forms of statistics, you are able to check the numbers for any of the past days and months, so you can easily see how the sites perform as the traffic to them increases or once you've applied some update.
