The CPU load depends on the length of time a hosting server spends executing a script any time a visitor opens a page on a certain script-driven site. Static HTML sites use hardly any CPU time, but this is not so with the far more advanced and functional scripts, that use a database and display dynamic content. The more clients open this sort of a site, the more load shall be created on the web server and if the database is large, the MySQL server will be loaded as well. An example of what may cause high load is an online store with tens of thousands of products. If it is popular, lots of people will be exploring it concurrently and if they seek out items, the entire database which 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 statistics can provide an idea of how the website is doing, if it has to be optimized or if you just need a more potent hosting solution - if the website is popular and the existing setup can't cope with the load.
MySQL & Load Stats in Shared Web Hosting
If you host your sites inside a shared web hosting account with us, you'll have access to detailed CPU and MySQL stats that will enable you to keep an eye on their performance. You could see the statistics with several clicks within your Hepsia Control Panel. The CPU Load section will reveal to you the total time frame the hosting server spent on your scripts and the amount of memory was required, plus the time it took for the scripts to be executed. The day-to-day view is the standard one, but you are able to also see the data from the previous months. The MySQL Load section will provide you with more details about the amount of queries to each database that you have set up within the account. Once again, you can easily see month-to-month, day-to-day and hourly stats, that will give you data which is different from the traffic or the number of visitors that you get. In this way, you can determine if the sites need some optimization.
