The CPU load depends on the amount of time a web server spends executing a script any time a visitor opens a webpage on a certain script-driven website. Static HTML sites use hardly any CPU time, but this is not so with the much more sophisticated and functional scripts, that use a database and display dynamic content. The more individuals open this kind of a site, the more load shall be generated on the hosting server and if the database is big, the MySQL server shall be loaded as well. A good example of what can cause high load is a web-based store with a large number of products. If it is popular, a lot of people will be exploring it all at once and if they search for items, the entire database containing all of the products shall also be continuously accessed by the script, resulting in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load data will give you an idea of how the website is doing, if it needs to be optimized or if you simply just need a more potent hosting solution - if the site is popular and the current setup cannot handle the load.
MySQL & Load Stats in Cloud Hosting
Our system keeps detailed info about the system resource usage of each cloud hosting account that's created on our top-notch cloud platform, so given that you opt to host your Internet sites with our company, you will have full access to this data from the Hepsia CP, which you will get with the account. The CPU load statistics feature the CPU time and the actual execution time of your scripts, as well as how much system memory they used. You could also see what processes generated the load - PHP or Perl scripts, cron jobs, etcetera. The MySQL load statistics section will show you the total amount queries to each specific database which you have created within your shared hosting account, the total queries for the account in general and the standard hourly rate. Comparing these figures to the website visitor stats will tell you if your sites perform the way they have to or if they need some optimization, that will improve their performance and the overall website visitor experience.
