The CPU load depends upon the time a server spends executing a script when a visitor opens a page on a certain script-driven site. Static HTML Internet sites use hardly any CPU time, but it's not the situation with the far more sophisticated and functional scripts, that use a database and display dynamic content. The more individuals open this type of an Internet site, the more load will be generated on the server and if the database is big, the MySQL server shall be loaded too. An example of what can cause high load is a web-based store with a huge number of products. If it's popular, plenty of people will be exploring it all at once and if they look for items, the whole database that contains all of the products will also be frequently accessed by the script, resulting in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load stats will offer you an idea of how the Internet site is doing, if it needs to be optimized or if you simply need a more potent web hosting solution - if the site is very popular and the established setup can't handle the load.
MySQL & Load Stats in Shared Website Hosting
Using the Hepsia Control Panel, bundled with all of our shared website hosting plans, you'll be able to see really comprehensive stats regarding the system resources that your websites use. One of the sections will give you info on the CPU load, like the amount of processing time the hosting server spent, the span of time it took for your scripts to be executed and the amount of memory they used. Stats are consistently produced every six hours and you can also see the types of processes that produced the most load - PHP, Perl, etc. MySQL load stats are listed inside a separate section in which you can see all the queries on a per hour, daily, etcetera. basis. You'll be able to go back and compare stats from different months to determine if some update has transformed the resource usage if the amount of site visitors hasn't changed much. Thus, you will see if your Internet site needs to be optimized, that will result in a better functionality and an improved user experience.
