If you have an HTML website, it probably uses a small amount of resources simply because it is static, but this is not so with dynamic database-driven websites that use PHP scripts and provide you with much more capabilities. This type of Internet sites generate load on the hosting server every time anyone browses them, simply because the web server needs time to execute the script, to access the database and then to provide the data requested by the visitor's browser. A famous discussion board, for instance, stores all usernames and posts in a database, so some load is produced each time a thread is opened or a user searches for a particular term. If a lot of people connect to the forum simultaneously, or if every single search involves checking a large number of database entries, this could generate high load and affect the functionality of the site. In this regard, CPU and MySQL load stats can give you info about the site’s overall performance, as you can compare the numbers with your traffic stats to determine if the website must be optimized or moved to a different kind of website hosting platform that'll be able to bear the high system load in the event that the Internet site is extremely popular.
MySQL & Load Stats in Shared Hosting
Our system keeps comprehensive info about the system resource usage of every shared hosting account that is created on our top-notch cloud platform, so if you opt to host your Internet sites with us, you will have full access to this data via the Hepsia CP, which you'll get with the account. The CPU load statistics feature the CPU time and the actual execution time of your scripts, and what amount of system memory they used. You may also see what processes created the load - PHP or Perl scripts, cron jobs, and so on. The MySQL load data section will show you the total amount queries to each individual database you have created in your shared hosting account, the total queries for the account overall and the normal hourly rate. Comparing these statistics to the website visitor data will tell you if your sites perform the way they should or if they need some optimization, which will improve their functionality and the overall website visitor experience.

When you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, included with every single account, you can go to the section dedicated to the system load. There, you can see the processing time our system spent on your scripts, the length of time it took for the scripts to be actually executed and what types of processes produced the load - cron jobs, PHP pages, Perl scripts, and so forth. Additionally you can see the total number of queries to each and every database in your semi-dedicated account, the total everyday figures for the account in general, along with the average hourly rate. With both the CPU and the MySQL load data, you can always go back to past days or months and compare the performance of your sites after some update or after a significant rise in the number of your visitors.
