The CPU load is dependent upon the amount of time a server spends executing a script every time a visitor opens a webpage on a certain script-driven Internet site. Static HTML sites use hardly any CPU time, but this isn't the case with the significantly more complex and functional scripts, which use a database and display dynamic content. The more people open this kind of a website, the more load will be created on the web server and if the database is large, the MySQL server will be loaded too. A good example of what may cause high load is an Internet store with tens of thousands of products. If it is popular, a lot of people shall be browsing it all at once and if they search for items, the entire database which contains all the products shall also be constantly accessed by the script, resulting in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load stats will give you an idea of how the site is doing, if it needs to be optimized or if you simply need a more effective website hosting solution - if the Internet site is popular and the existing setup can't handle the load.
MySQL & Load Stats in Cloud Web Hosting
If you host your websites in a cloud web hosting account with us, you'll have access to thorough CPU and MySQL data which will allow you to keep an eye on their operation. You could see the stats with a few clicks inside your Hepsia Control Panel. The CPU Load section will show you the total time the hosting server spent on your scripts and how much memory was required, along with the time it took for the scripts to be executed. The daily view is the default one, but you can also see the data from the previous months. The MySQL Load section give you additional information about the total amount of queries to every database that you have created in the account. Once again, you can easily see per month, day-to-day and per hour stats, that'll give you data that is different from the traffic or the number of visitors which you get. This way, you can see if the Internet sites require some optimization.
