Each time a visitor opens your website, the browser sends a request to the server, which in turn executes it and provides the necessary data as a response. A simple HTML site uses very little resources because it is static, but database-driven platforms are more demanding and use much more processing time. Every page that's served creates two kinds of load - CPU load, that depends on the time period the hosting server spends executing a particular script; and MySQL load, which depends on the amount of database queries created by the script while the customer browses the site. Greater load will be created if a lot of people browse a certain Internet site concurrently or if many database calls are made at the same time. Two examples are a discussion board with many users or an online store in which a customer enters a term in a search box and tens of thousands of items are searched. Having in depth data about the load which your site generates can help you boost the content or see if it is time for you to switch to a more powerful kind of web hosting service, if the Internet site is simply getting extremely popular.

MySQL & Load Stats in Hosting

Our system keeps comprehensive info about the system resource usage of every hosting account that's set up on our top-notch cloud platform, so in case you decide to host your sites with our company, you will have full access to this information via the Hepsia Control Panel, which you'll get with the account. The CPU load statistics feature the CPU time and the actual execution time of your scripts, and the amount of system memory they used. You may see what processes generated the load - PHP or Perl scripts, cron jobs, etcetera. The MySQL load data section will show you the amount of queries to each specific database that you've created within your shared hosting account, the total queries for the account altogether and the average hourly rate. Comparing these statistics to the site visitor statistics will tell you if your Internet sites perform the way they should or if they need some optimization, which will improve their functionality and the overall website visitor experience.

Stats are generated every 6 hours, but if needed, you could also check figures for previous days or months. The MySQL Load section will show you the total amount of database queries per day and each hour, as well as the queries to each individual database which you have in your semi-dedicated account.
