The CPU load is dependent upon the time period a hosting server spends executing a script every time a visitor opens a page on a particular script-driven website. Static HTML Internet sites use barely any CPU time, but it is not the case with the considerably more advanced and functional scripts, which use a database and display dynamic content. The more clients open this type of a site, the more load shall be generated on the web server and if the database is very large, the MySQL server shall be loaded too. An illustration of what could cause high load is a web-based store with tens of thousands of products. If it is popular, lots of people shall be visiting it at the same time and if they search for items, the whole database containing all of the products shall also be continuously accessed by the script, which will result in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load stats will give you an idea of how the website is doing, if it has to be optimized or if you simply need a more powerful hosting solution - if the site is very popular and the existing setup can't handle the load.
MySQL & Load Stats in Cloud Web Hosting
Our system keeps detailed information about the system resource usage of each cloud web hosting account that's set up on our top-notch cloud platform, so in case you decide to host your sites with us, you will have full access to this information through the Hepsia CP, which you will get with the account. The CPU load stats feature the CPU time and the actual execution time of your scripts, and how much system memory they used. You can also see what processes produced the load - PHP or Perl scripts, cron jobs, etcetera. The MySQL load data section will show you the number of queries to each individual database which you have created inside your shared hosting account, the total queries for the account altogether and the average hourly rate. Comparing these figures to the website visitor stats shall tell you if your sites perform the way they need to or if they need some optimization, which will improve their efficiency and the overall site visitor experience.
