The CPU load depends on the time a web server spends executing a script every time a visitor opens a webpage on a particular script-driven Internet site. Static HTML sites use barely any CPU time, but it is not so with the much more sophisticated and functional scripts, that use a database and display dynamic content. The more clients open this type of a site, the more load shall be created on the hosting server and if the database is large, the MySQL server shall be loaded as well. A good example of what can cause high load is an online store with thousands of products. If it's popular, many people shall be browsing it at the same time and if they look for items, the entire database which contains all the products shall also be continuously accessed by the script, which will result in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load statistics will give you an idea of how the Internet site is doing, if it needs 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 handle the load.
MySQL & Load Stats in Web Hosting
Our system keeps comprehensive information about the system resource usage of every web hosting account which is set up on our top-notch cloud platform, so if you choose to host your sites with our company, you shall have full access to this data from the Hepsia CP, which you'll get with the account. The CPU load stats feature the CPU time and the actual execution time of your scripts, along with how much system memory they used. You may see what processes produced 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 you have created inside your shared hosting account, the total queries for the account in general and the typical hourly rate. Comparing these statistics to the visitor stats will tell you if your sites perform the way they have to or if they need some optimization, that will improve their overall performance and the overall website visitor experience.
