Each time a visitor opens your Internet site, the Internet browser sends a request to the server, which in turn executes it and provides the necessary information as a response. A basic HTML site uses minimal system resources because it is static, but database-driven platforms are more demanding and use far more processing time. Each page that is served creates two types of load - CPU load, that depends on the span of time the server spends executing a certain script; and MySQL load, that depends on the number of database queries produced by the script while the end user browses the website. Greater load shall be produced if a considerable amount of people surf a given site concurrently or if numerous database calls are made at the same time. Two illustrations are a discussion board with a huge number of users or an online store where a client enters a term within a search box and a large number of items are searched. Having thorough data about the load which your site generates will enable you to improve the content or see if it is time to switch to a more powerful sort of website hosting service, if the Internet site is simply getting extremely popular.
MySQL & Load Stats in Website Hosting
Our system keeps detailed info about the system resource usage of each and every website hosting account which is created on our top-notch cloud platform, so in case you choose to host your Internet sites with us, you'll have full access to this information via the Hepsia CP, which you shall get with the account. The CPU load data include the CPU time and the actual execution time of your scripts, plus what amount of system memory they used. You may also see what processes produced the load - PHP or Perl scripts, cron jobs, etcetera. The MySQL load statistics section will show you the amount of queries to each individual database that you've created within your shared hosting account, the total queries for the account overall and the standard hourly rate. Comparing these figures to the visitor statistics shall tell you if your sites perform the way they need to or if they need some optimization, that'll improve their functionality and the overall visitor experience.
