If you have an HTML site, in all probability it uses a very small amount of resources due to the fact that it is static, but this is not the case with dynamic database-driven websites that use PHP scripts and offer a lot more capabilities. This sort of sites generate load on the hosting server each and every time anyone browses them, simply because the hosting server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to provide the content requested by the visitor's browser. A well-known discussion board, for example, stores all usernames and posts in a database, so some load is generated any time a thread is opened or an end user searches for a certain term. If many people connect to the forum concurrently, or if every search involves checking a large number of database entries, this may create high load and affect the overall performance of the Internet site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load statistics can provide you with data about the site’s overall performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic statistics to determine if the site must be optimized or migrated to a new type of web hosting platform which will be able to bear the high system load if the website is very popular.
MySQL & Load Stats in Shared Website Hosting
If you host your websites in a shared website hosting account with us, you will have access to comprehensive CPU and MySQL data that will permit you to keep tabs on their performance. You can easily see the statistics with a few mouse clicks within your Hepsia CP. The CPU Load section can tell you the total time period the hosting server spent on your scripts and how much memory was required, as well as the time it took for the scripts to be executed. The day-to-day view is the default one, but you may also see the data from the past months. The MySQL Load section will provide you with more details about the total amount of queries to each database that you have set up in the account. Once again, you can see monthly, everyday and per hour stats, that'll give you information that's different from the traffic or the number of visitors that you get. In this way, you can see if the sites require some optimization.
