If you have an HTML Internet site, most likely it uses a very small amount of system resources due to the fact that it is static, but this is not so with dynamic database-driven Internet sites that use PHP scripts and offer much more features. This sort of Internet sites produce load on the hosting server when anyone browses them, because the hosting server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to deliver the information requested by the visitor's Internet browser. A well-known discussion board, for example, stores all usernames and posts within a database, so some load is produced every single time a thread is opened or an end user looks for a particular term. If a lot of people connect to the forum simultaneously, or if each search involves checking thousands of database entries, this can generate high load and affect the functionality of the site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load stats can provide you with info about the site’s efficiency, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic data to make a decision if the website has to be optimized or moved to another kind of hosting platform that'll be able to bear the high system load in case the site is very popular.

MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you would like to see comprehensive stats for the load created by your sites, it won't take more than a few clicks to do that. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all semi-dedicated servers that we offer, features a section dedicated to the system resource usage and the information there shall tell you if your sites function properly and if the load they produce corresponds to the amount of received website visitors. The CPU load stats include the script execution time and the amount of time it took for the machine to process the requests, and what types of processes produced the load. The MySQL statistics will show you the number of times each database was accessed, and also daily and by the hour stats for the entire account. With both kinds of statistics, you can check the numbers for each of the past days and months, so you can easily see how the websites perform as the traffic to them increases or after you have applied some update.
