The CPU load is dependent upon the amount of time a hosting server spends executing a script any time a visitor opens a page on a certain script-driven site. Static HTML Internet sites use barely any CPU time, but it's not the situation with the considerably more sophisticated and functional scripts, which use a database and display dynamic content. The more people open this kind of an Internet site, the more load will be created on the hosting server and if the database is big, the MySQL server will be loaded also. A good example of what may cause high load is a web-based store with tens of thousands of products. If it is popular, a lot of people will be browsing it simultaneously and if they look for items, the whole database which contains all 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 website is doing, if it needs to be optimized or if you simply just need a more efficient website hosting solution - if the Internet site is very popular and the existing setup can't cope with the load.
MySQL & Load Stats in Hosting
Our system keeps comprehensive information about the system resource usage of every single hosting account that is created on our top-notch cloud platform, so in case you decide to host your Internet sites with us, you shall have full access to this information through the Hepsia CP, which you will get with the account. The CPU load stats include the CPU time and the actual execution time of your scripts, plus how much system memory they used. You can also see what processes created the load - PHP or Perl scripts, cron jobs, etcetera. The MySQL load stats section will show you the number of queries to each specific database which you have created in your shared hosting account, the total queries for the account altogether and the normal hourly rate. Comparing these numbers to the website visitor stats will tell you if your websites perform the way they need to or if they require some optimization, that'll improve their performance and the overall visitor experience.
