Every time a visitor opens your site, the browser sends a request to the hosting server, which in turn executes it and gives the necessary data as a response. A simple HTML Internet site uses very little resources because it is static, but database-driven platforms are more demanding and use much more processing time. Every single webpage that is served creates 2 types of load - CPU load, that depends on the amount of time the server spends executing a certain script; and MySQL load, that depends on the total number of database queries generated by the script while the user browses the site. Larger load shall be generated if a lot of people browse a given site concurrently or if many database calls are made at the same time. Two illustrations are a discussion board with many users or an online store where a visitor enters a term inside a search box and a large number of items are searched. Having comprehensive data about the load that your Internet site generates will enable you to improve the content or see if it is time for you to switch to a more powerful sort of web hosting service, if the website is simply getting very popular.
MySQL & Load Stats in Cloud Hosting
If you host your Internet sites within a cloud hosting account with us, you will have access to detailed CPU and MySQL stats that will allow you to keep track of their overall performance. You can easily see the data with a few mouse clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. The CPU Load section can tell you the total time the web server spent on your scripts and what amount of memory was required, along with the time it took for the scripts to be executed. The day-to-day view is the default one, but you are able to also see the stats from the past months. The MySQL Load section offer you additional information about the number of queries to each and every database that you have set up within the account. Once again, you can easily see monthly, everyday and hourly data, that shall give you information that is different from the traffic or the number of visitors which you get. In this way, you can determine if the websites require some optimization.
MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you would like to see comprehensive statistics with regards to the load created by your Internet sites, it will not take more than a few clicks to do that. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, included with all semi-dedicated servers which we offer, has a section devoted to the system resource usage and the information there will tell you if your sites perform well and if the load they generate corresponds to the number of received site visitors. The CPU load statistics include the script execution time and the length of time it took for the machine to process the requests, as well as what kinds of processes produced the load. The MySQL stats shall show you the number of times each database was accessed, and day-to-day and by the hour statistics for the entire account. With both types of statistics, you are able to check the numbers for each of the past days and months, so you can see how the websites perform as the traffic to them increases or after you have applied some update.
