Each time a visitor opens your Internet site, the browser sends a request to the server, which executes it and gives the necessary content as a response. A standard HTML site uses negligible resources for the reason that it's static, but database-driven platforms are more requiring and use far more processing time. Each page that's served generates 2 kinds of load - CPU load, that depends on the length of time the server spends executing a certain script; and MySQL load, that depends on the number of database queries created by the script while the customer browses the Internet site. Higher load shall be generated if a lot of people surf a certain site all at once or if a lot of database calls are made at the same time. Two good examples are a discussion board with a large number of users or an online store in which a client enters a term in a search box and a large number of items are searched. Having thorough statistics about the load your Internet site generates will allow you to optimize the content or see if it's time for you to switch to a more powerful kind of website hosting service, if the website is simply getting really popular.
MySQL & Load Stats in Cloud Hosting
If you host your Internet sites in a cloud hosting account with us, you'll have access to in depth CPU and MySQL data that will permit you to keep track of their overall performance. You can easily see the data with a few clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. The CPU Load section can tell you the total time the web server spent on your scripts and what amount of memory was required, and the time it took for the scripts to be executed. The day-to-day view is the default one, but you could also see the data from the past months. The MySQL Load section offer more details about the total amount of queries to each database that you have created in the account. Once again, you can see monthly, daily and per hour statistics, that'll give you information that is different from the traffic or the number of visitors which you get. That way, you can determine if the sites require some optimization.
MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you want to see thorough stats with regards to the load produced by your sites, it won't take more than just a few clicks to do that. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided with all semi-dedicated servers we offer, features a section focused on 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 total amount of received site visitors. The CPU load data include the script execution time and the amount of time it took for the hosting server to process the requests, and what sorts of processes created the load. The MySQL statistics shall show you how frequently each database was accessed, and also day-to-day and hourly data for the entire account. With both kinds of statistics, you are able to check the numbers for any of the past days and months, so you can see how sites perform as the traffic to them rises or after you have applied some update.
