The CPU load depends on the time a web server spends executing a script whenever a visitor opens a webpage on a particular script-driven website. Static HTML websites use barely any CPU time, but this isn't the case with the much more sophisticated and functional scripts, which use a database and display dynamic content. The more clients open such a site, the more load will be produced on the hosting server and if the database is very large, the MySQL server will be loaded also. An illustration of what could cause high load is an online store with thousands of products. If it's popular, many people shall be exploring it all at once and if they seek out items, the entire database which contains all of the products shall also be continuously accessed by the script, resulting in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load statistics will give you an idea of how the site is doing, if it has to be optimized or if you simply need a more efficient hosting solution - if the Internet site is really popular and the current setup cannot cope with the load.
MySQL & Load Stats in Cloud Web Hosting
Our system keeps comprehensive info about the system resource usage of each and every cloud web hosting account that's created on our top-notch cloud platform, so if you opt to host your sites with us, you'll have full access to this data through the Hepsia Control Panel, which you shall get with the account. The CPU load stats include the CPU time and the actual execution time of your scripts, plus the amount of system memory they used. You could also see what processes generated the load - PHP or Perl scripts, cron jobs, and so forth. The MySQL load statistics section will show you the amount of queries to each specific database that you've created in your shared hosting account, the total queries for the account altogether and the average hourly rate. Comparing these numbers to the site visitor statistics shall tell you if your websites perform the way they have to or if they require some optimization, that will improve their performance and the overall website visitor experience.
