The CPU load depends on the time a server spends executing a script every time a visitor opens a webpage on a given script-driven Internet site. Static HTML websites use barely any CPU time, but this is not the situation with the much more complex and functional scripts, that use a database and display dynamic content. The more clients open this sort of an Internet site, the more load shall be generated on the server and if the database is very large, the MySQL server shall be loaded also. A good example of what could cause high load is an Internet store with tens of thousands of products. If it's popular, lots of people will be browsing it at the same time and if they search for items, the entire database that contains all the products shall also be continuously accessed by the script, which will result in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load statistics will offer you an idea of how the website is doing, if it needs to be optimized or if you simply just need a more powerful web hosting solution - if the Internet site is extremely popular and the existing setup cannot handle the load.
MySQL & Load Stats in Shared Hosting
If you host your sites inside a shared hosting account with us, you will have access to detailed CPU and MySQL stats that will allow you to keep track of their overall performance. You can easily see the data with a few clicks within your Hepsia CP. The CPU Load section can tell you the total time the web server spent on your scripts and how much memory was needed, along with 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 previous months. The MySQL Load section offer additional information about the amount of queries to every database that you have set up within the account. Once again, you can see per month, everyday and hourly stats, that will give you info which is different from the traffic or the number of visitors you get. That way, you can determine if the Internet sites need some optimization.
