The CPU load is dependent upon the time period a web server spends executing a script every time a visitor opens a page on a specific script-driven site. Static HTML websites use hardly any CPU time, but this is not the situation with the much more advanced and functional scripts, that use a database and display dynamic content. The more people open this kind of a website, the more load shall be created on the web server and if the database is large, the MySQL server will be loaded too. A good example of what can cause high load is a web-based store with thousands of products. If it's popular, plenty of people shall be browsing it concurrently and if they look for items, the whole database which contains all the products will also be continuously accessed by the script, resulting in high load. In this light, having CPU and MySQL load statistics can provide an idea of how the Internet site is doing, if it has to be optimized or if you simply need a more efficient website hosting solution - if the Internet site is really popular and the existing setup can't handle the load.
MySQL & Load Stats in Cloud Website Hosting
Our system keeps comprehensive information about the system resource usage of each cloud website hosting account that's created on our top-notch cloud platform, so in case you opt to host your sites with our company, you'll have full access to this data via the Hepsia CP, which you will get with the account. The CPU load statistics include the CPU time and the actual execution time of your scripts, as well as what amount of system memory they used. You can also see what processes generated the load - PHP or Perl scripts, cron jobs, and so on. The MySQL load data section will show you the amount of queries to each specific database you have created in your shared hosting account, the total queries for the account in general and the normal hourly rate. Comparing these statistics to the site visitor data shall tell you if your sites perform the way they should or if they need some optimization, that will improve their functionality and the overall website visitor experience.
