The CPU load depends upon the time period a server spends executing a script every time a visitor opens a webpage on a given script-driven site. Static HTML websites use hardly any CPU time, but it is not the situation with the considerably more advanced and functional scripts, which use a database and display dynamic content. The more people open this type of a site, the more load shall be created on the hosting server and if the database is large, the MySQL server will be loaded too. An example of what could cause high load is an online store with thousands of products. If it's popular, plenty of people shall be visiting it at the same time and if they seek out items, the entire database which 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 stats will provide you with an idea of how the Internet site is doing, if it needs to be optimized or if you simply just need a more powerful hosting solution - if the website is very popular and the current setup can't deal with the load.
MySQL & Load Stats in Cloud Website Hosting
Using the Hepsia CP, bundled with all of our cloud website hosting plans, you will be able to see incredibly detailed data regarding the resources which your sites use. One of the sections shall give you details about the CPU load, like how much processing time the server spent, the length of time it took for your scripts to be executed and the amount of memory they used. Stats are routinely produced every 6 hours and you can also see the different types of processes that produced the most load - PHP, Perl, etc. MySQL load statistics are listed in a separate section in which you'll be able to see all the queries on a per hour, day-to-day, etc. basis. You'll be able to go back and compare statistics from various months to find out if some update has transformed the resource usage if the number of site visitors has not changed much. Thus, you will see if your site needs to be optimized, that will result in a better general performance and an improved user experience.
