Each time a visitor opens your site, the browser sends a request to the web server, which executes it and provides the desired content as a response. A simple HTML website uses minimal resources for the reason that it's static, but database-driven platforms are more demanding and use much more processing time. Every page which is served creates two sorts of load - CPU load, that depends on the span of time 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 end user browses the Internet site. Higher load will be produced if loads of people browse a particular Internet site all at once or if numerous database calls are made at the same time. 2 examples are a discussion board with many users or an online store where a customer enters a term in a search box and a large number of items are searched. Having comprehensive statistics about the load that your website generates will allow you to optimize the content or see if it's time for you to switch to a more powerful kind of hosting service, if the website is simply getting quite popular.
MySQL & Load Stats in Hosting
Our system keeps detailed information about the system resource usage of each and every hosting account that's set up on our top-notch cloud platform, so in case you choose to host your sites with us, you shall have full access to this data from 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, along with how much system memory they used. You may also see what processes generated the load - PHP or Perl scripts, cron jobs, etc. The MySQL load data section will show you the number of queries to each specific database which you have created within your shared hosting account, the total queries for the account altogether and the standard hourly rate. Comparing these numbers to the website visitor stats shall tell you if your sites perform the way they should or if they need some optimization, which will improve their functionality and the overall site visitor experience.
