The CPU load is dependent upon the time a hosting server spends executing a script when a visitor opens a page on a given script-driven Internet site. Static HTML Internet sites use barely any CPU time, but this isn't the situation with the considerably more sophisticated and functional scripts, which use a database and display dynamic content. The more customers open this sort of an Internet site, the more load will be generated on the web server and if the database is big, the MySQL server shall be loaded as well. A good example of what could cause high load is an online store with a huge number of products. If it is popular, lots of people shall be exploring it all at once and if they seek out items, the whole database that contains all of the products will also be constantly accessed by the script, resulting in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load data will give you an idea of how the website is doing, if it has to be optimized or if you simply just need a more efficient hosting solution - if the site is extremely popular and the current setup cannot handle the load.

Statistics are automatically provided every six hours and you may also see the different types of processes that produced the most load - PHP, Perl, etc. MySQL load statistics are listed in a different section where you'll be able to see all the queries on a per hour, day-to-day, and so on. basis. You can go back and compare data from different months to find out if some update has altered the resource usage if the total amount of website visitors has not changed much.

MySQL & Load Stats in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you want to see in depth statistics regarding the load generated by your websites, it will not take more than just a few clicks to do that. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all semi-dedicated servers that we offer, has a section committed to the system resource usage and the information there will tell you if your Internet sites perform well and if the load they generate corresponds to the number of received site visitors. The CPU load data include the script execution time and the time it took for the server to process the requests, and also what kinds of processes generated the load. The MySQL statistics will show you how often each database was accessed, and everyday and hourly data for the entire account. With both forms of statistics, you can check the numbers for each of the past days and months, so you could see how the sites perform as the traffic to them rises or once you've applied some update.
