Whenever a visitor opens your Internet site, the web browser sends a request to the hosting server, which executes it and provides the desired data as a response. A simple HTML website uses very little resources because it's static, but database-driven platforms are more demanding and use much more processing time. Each page that is served produces two types of load - CPU load, that depends on the time the server spends executing a specific script; and MySQL load, which depends on the number of database queries generated by the script while the user browses the Internet site. Greater load shall be created if a lot of people browse a particular Internet site simultaneously or if numerous database calls are made concurrently. 2 examples are a discussion board with thousands of users or an online store in which a client enters a term within a search box and tens of thousands of items are searched. Having in depth stats about the load that your site generates will enable you to optimize the content or see if it's the perfect time to switch to a more powerful kind of web hosting service, if the Internet site is simply getting really popular.
MySQL & Load Stats in Cloud Web Hosting
Using the Hepsia CP, which comes with all our cloud web hosting packages, you'll be able to see incredibly detailed stats about the system resources your websites use. One of the sections shall give you information about the CPU load, like the amount of processing time the hosting server spent, how much time it took for your scripts to be executed and how much memory they used. Stats are routinely generated every 6 hours and you may also see the different types of processes that produced the most load - PHP, Perl, etc. MySQL load stats are listed within an individual section in which you'll be able to see all the queries on an hourly, day-to-day, and so on. basis. You could go back and compare data from various months to see if some update has changed the resource usage if the total amount of visitors hasn't changed much. This way, you can see if your website needs to be optimized, which will contribute to a better performance and an improved user experience.
