Each time a visitor opens your website, the web browser sends a request to the hosting server, which executes it and provides the required information as a response. A simple HTML website uses very little resources for the reason that it is static, but database-driven platforms are more demanding and use far more processing time. Each webpage which is served produces two forms of load - CPU load, that depends on the time period the web server spends executing a particular script; and MySQL load, which depends on the number of database queries generated by the script while the customer browses the website. Greater load shall be created if loads of people surf a particular website simultaneously or if many database calls are made concurrently. Two good examples are a discussion board with a large number of users or an online store where a visitor enters a term within a search box and thousands of items are searched. Having comprehensive stats about the load your website generates can help you optimize the content or see if it is time to switch to a more powerful kind of web hosting service, if the Internet site is simply getting really popular.

You can easily see the statistics with a couple of clicks in your Hepsia CP. The CPU Load section can tell you the total time frame the web server spent on your scripts and just how much memory was needed, plus the time it took for the scripts to be executed. The day-to-day view is the default one, but you are able to also see the numbers from the previous months. The MySQL Load section offer more info about the total amount of queries to each database that you have created inside the account. Once again, you can see per month, daily and hourly stats, that shall give you data that is different from the traffic or the number of visitors that you get. This way, you can identify if the websites need some optimization.

MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Because our system keeps detailed statistics for the load that every semi-dedicated server account produces, you'll be aware of how your sites perform at any time. When you log in to the Hepsia CP, supplied with every single account, you can check out the section dedicated to the system load. There, you can see the processing time our system spent on your scripts, how much time it took for the scripts to be actually executed and what types of processes produced the load - cron jobs, PHP pages, Perl scripts, etc. You may also see the number of queries to each database within your semi-dedicated account, the total day-to-day stats for the account as a whole, along with the average hourly rate. With both the CPU and the MySQL load statistics, you could always go back to past days or months and compare the general performance of your Internet sites after some update or after a sizeable increase in the number of your visitors.
