Each time a visitor opens your site, the Internet browser sends a request to the server, which in turn executes it and gives the desired content as a response. A standard HTML website uses negligible resources due to the fact that it's static, but database-driven platforms are more demanding and use far more processing time. Every webpage that is served generates two types of load - CPU load, which depends on the time the hosting server spends executing a specific script; and MySQL load, which depends on the number of database queries created by the script while the customer browses the site. Larger load will be created if a whole lot of people browse a given website at the same time or if a considerable amount of database calls are made concurrently. 2 illustrations are a discussion board with many users or an online store in which a client enters a term in a search box and a large number of items are searched. Having comprehensive data about the load that your site generates can help you optimize the content or see if it's time for you to switch to a more powerful type of hosting service, if the Internet site is simply getting very popular.
MySQL & Load Stats in Cloud Web Hosting
Using the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all our cloud web hosting offers, you'll be able to see incredibly detailed data about the system resources that your websites use. One of the sections will give you information regarding the CPU load, including the amount of processing time the hosting server spent, the time it took for your scripts to be executed and exactly how much memory they used. Stats are routinely generated every 6 hours and you can also see the types of processes that produced the most load - PHP, Perl, and so on. MySQL load data are listed inside a separate section in which you are able to see all the queries on an hourly, everyday, etcetera. basis. You can go back and compare statistics from different months to see if some update has changed the resource usage if the amount of site visitors has not changed much. Thus, you can determine if your website needs to be optimized, which will result in a better overall performance and an improved user experience.
MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you need to see thorough statistics regarding the load produced by your sites, it will not take more than just a few clicks to do that. The Hepsia hosting CP, included with all semi-dedicated servers that we offer, has a section committed to the system resource usage and the data there shall tell you if your sites operate properly and if the load they create corresponds to the amount of received visitors. The CPU load data include the script execution time and the time it took for the hosting server to process the requests, as well as what types of processes generated the load. The MySQL data will show you the number of times every database was accessed, and daily and per hour statistics for the entire account. With both sorts of stats, you are able to check the numbers for any of the past days and months, so you can see how sites perform as the traffic to them rises or once you've applied some update.
