Whenever a visitor opens your website, the web browser sends a request to the hosting server, which executes it and provides the desired information as a response. A simple HTML site uses very little system resources as it is static, but database-driven platforms are more demanding and use more processing time. Every single page that is served generates 2 forms of load - CPU load, which depends on the length of time the server spends executing a particular script; and MySQL load, which depends on the amount of database queries created by the script while the client browses the site. Greater load will be generated if a lot of people browse a particular website all at once or if numerous database calls are made all at once. Two good examples are a discussion board with many users or an online store in which a visitor enters a term in a search box and a large number of items are searched. Having detailed stats about the load which your website generates can help you boost 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 very popular.

MySQL & Load Stats in Shared Website Hosting

Our system keeps detailed info about the system resource usage of every single shared website hosting account that is created on our top-notch cloud platform, so in case you decide to host your sites with our company, you will have full access to this info from the Hepsia Control Panel, which you'll get with the account. The CPU load data feature the CPU time and the actual execution time of your scripts, plus how much system memory they used. You can also see what processes generated the load - PHP or Perl scripts, cron jobs, and so on. The MySQL load statistics section will show you the amount of queries to each individual database which you have created in your shared hosting account, the total queries for the account altogether and the typical hourly rate. Comparing these statistics to the site visitor statistics will tell you if your sites perform the way they have to or if they require some optimization, which will improve their efficiency and the overall visitor experience.
