Each time a visitor opens your website, the web browser sends a request to the server, which in turn executes it and provides the necessary information as a response. A simple HTML website uses minimal system resources due to the fact that it is static, but database-driven platforms are more requiring and use far more processing time. Each and every webpage that's served generates 2 kinds of load - CPU load, that depends on the time period the web server spends executing a certain script; and MySQL load, which depends on the amount of database queries produced by the script while the end user browses the site. Higher load will be created if loads of people look through a certain website concurrently or if a considerable amount of database calls are made concurrently. 2 good examples are a discussion board with many users or an online store where a visitor enters a term inside a search box and tens of thousands of items are searched. Having comprehensive stats about the load which your Internet site generates can help you improve the content or see if it is the perfect time to switch to a more powerful type of web hosting service, if the website is simply getting extremely popular.

One of the sections will give you info on the CPU load, like how much processing time the hosting server spent, the time it took for your scripts to be executed and the amount of memory they used. Statistics are routinely produced every 6 hours and you could also see the types of processes that generated the most load - PHP, Perl, and so forth. MySQL load stats are listed within a different section where you'll be able to see all the queries on a per hour, daily, etcetera. basis. You can go back and compare stats from various months to find out whether some update has changed the resource usage if the number of website visitors hasn't changed much.

MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you need to see in depth statistics regarding the load created by your sites, it won't take more than several mouse clicks to do this. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, supplied with all semi-dedicated servers that we offer, features a section committed to the system resource usage and the data there shall tell you if your Internet sites function properly and if the load they generate corresponds to the number of received visitors. The CPU load stats include the script execution time and how much time it took for the machine to process the requests, and also what types of processes produced the load. The MySQL statistics shall show you the number of times every database was accessed, plus everyday and by the hour data for the whole account. With both types of statistics, you can check the numbers for each of the past days and months, so you could see how the sites perform as the traffic to them increases or once you've applied some update.
